You could tell him and McDonagh were spent by the Devils series.
You can blame management for failing to address the need of a competent RS top 4 defenseman.

I don't see why Moore should get PP time. He isn't a good offensive player. Girardi, while ineffective at times on the PP, can still make smart plays in the offensive zone. Timely deflections, bank pass off the boards, etc. On a competent PP team, he'd be a 2nd unit guy.
