Getting a huge headache on Moore discussion. A lot of conclusions based on small sample sizes with players that are still at the beginning stages of development brought on by a desire for instant gratification.

Moore couldn't get back in the lineup. The Rangers liked him and requested him. We had depth and we needed scoring. Moore could develop into a top pairing guy, might not. He wasn't really developed much in the AHL before he came up here, mainly one season. He is still very young, especially for a defensemen.

We are just circling around to the same conversation(s) every time one of these players has a good game in the playoffs.

Gaborik started off strong on the production side, finished light. But he still was a +5. We found out later an abdomen issue could have impacted him a bit down the stretch.

Next year come please.
