It rarely, if ever, works out like that. You trade good / cheap / young players when you have other better / cheaper / younger players pushing them out of the lineup.

I like Moore as much as anyone, but assuming he can absorb minutes that become available after the loss of a DZ or Staal is just poor asset management. If someone wants to offer up a top-nine forward and RH top-4 defender for DZ and Boyle, then I'm listening. However, just swapping a D for a winger is opening up one hole to fill another.
You mean posters jump to conclusions here based on absurdly small (or zero) sample size? Sorry, I just dont buy it.
