I think one thing that hasn't been suggested is that Brassard playing for Torts could create some challenges. He's been labeled as "only able to play with a certain coaching style" and that didn't appear to be for coaches like Torts.
Moore is going to be solid. He's a 2nd pair guy with great wheels. I'm sad to see him go but we had the depth that we could afford it. As for Dorsett, he's a team guy and will provide heart but we have a lot of those types with more skill.
Gaborik should be fine under Richards (I think they both were in the MN organization at the same time ???) and can be a game breaker. REality is the CBJ don't have anyone like him at any level in the organization and he's still got years left. Granted C-bus needs to think about another contract depending on next year's (and this playoff push) poduction.
Should be a reasonable deal but I'm pretty comfortable that CBJ didn't give up anythign that wasn't redundant and got an asset that was sorely needed.
