I don't agree with this. DZ's making $2.55 mil this year. This summer if the Rangers qualify him he already goes to $2.9. Essentially he's at least a $3 mil per year player after this year and sooner rather than later he'll be a $4 mil per year or more player. If he's bottom pairing or getting scratched all the time that's just wasted cap space. In any case bottom liners--bottom pairing guys should be guys who don't cost you a lot. Moore's cap hit is in line with what he's able to do for the team.
