I reiterate my question about John Moore, however. SO many people either think he's arrived or think he will surpass Del Zotto as he "develops." They are the same age. Del Zotto has shown four years of regular development. What makes anyone think that Moore will suddenly surpass Del Zotto when MDZ has been the significantly better player for the entirety of their careers?
jm hasnt had the nhl games that mdz has. mike has had more key minutes.

some of us still believe mdz has serious holes in his game.

i happen to believe jm's game shows more upside. his skating is head and shoulders better and thats huge. imo, mdz doesnt process the game that well and his recovery ability is suspect. even though jm is still learning on the job, his overall game is better suited to a top 4 nhl defender.
