On the subject of Moen - he's been horrible this year, no doubt about it. He's lost that edge, his offense has evaporated, he looks like he's skating in quicksand, isn't engaging himself that physically anymore.

I really hope the half-season lull is what has him out of sync. I'd hate this to be the Moen we see for the next 3 years after this one.

Moen isn't Prust, but he can play at a similar level. He's shown that in the past. Not sure what's up this year. Hoping it's an injury.
He is playing below where he was last year...but saying he is playing "horrible" to me is a big exageration. He isn't playing at a 1.8 mil cap hit level, but he is playing a solid level for a 4th liner, maybe he is unhappy Prust gets more ice time or maybe he is hurt.

He could be doing more, but he isn't hurting the team, he is playing good defensively and on PK.
