Moen was a huge factor in the Ducks winning the cup back when he was breaking into the league.

The importance of role players is huge when playoffs come around.
I think Pahlsson and Niedermayer are what made that line work so well defensively. Moen was complementary muscle. He did well at it, but he was not the cerebral component of that line.
