Moen doesn't go unnoticed, he goes noticed for how much of a lazy ass he's become and for not doing the job he used to do, same goes for Armstrong who used to be a pest and who's now noticed for being a slower version of Pierre Dagenais
Moen has more of a physical presence than Dumont, kills penalities and is one of our best defensive forwards. Not sure if people expect him to fight every game or run around like a chicken with it's head cut off and try and hit everybody.

It's the same thing every year on here, the posters which each other into a frenzy and by the end of the year there are 2-3 players that "have to go". Then the following year they crap on somebody else and say how much better player X or Y is doing(mostly because they have lowered their own expectations of taht players to mind boggingly low levels).

Bourque is a prime example of that. Last year he was getting chances but was snakebitted, this year he comes in healthier and scores a few goals and everybody loves him.
