JM is advertised to play both sides and hasn't "thrived" so far on the left anyways. We already know DZ, like McD and Staal, is much better on the left. I don't buy the "Del Zotto needs Staal's minutes to play well" because he had a good stretch of hockey while Staal was out. Playing 22 minutes and playing 18 minutes aren't as drastically different as some are suggesting, and I believe giving DZ and JMoore solid, balanced 3rd pairing minutes and a chance to grow together on the second PP unit will help this team.
Yea it's not a bad idea . Jmoore didn't practice rd but he should
