We've yet to see Moore consistently play top-4 minutes. Obviously his offensive production is way out of line with what Del Zotto has already accomplished as well. I think it's quite a stretch to say Moore is already a better all-around defender than MDZ is. Could he be? Maybe, but he has a long way to go before we can say that.
Moore played a top 4 role for one game in the playoffs and it looked like way too much for him frankly.
