Some things I think people really don't understand about this player:

Moore was a first round pick based on his size and skating ability. There was hope that he would eventually use those abilities to turn into a good two-way blue liner ala McDonagh, Skjei (who is a lot better then John Moore ever was as a prospect), ect.

What people don't realize is that neither of those things truly came to fruition during his development. He never even made the WJC team.

When we got him last season he was no longer in the realm of being a top prospect. He was a decent asset that looked like he would never reach his potential.

The optimism regarding John Moore comes out of his draft status and the belief that he will turn into something because he's a good prospect. Truth is he hasn't been a good prospect since 2010.

He was solid last season and looked explosive during the preseason. Otherwise he's following the standard trajectory he's been on since he was drafted; leveling out.
