hes lacking experience and confidence. thats it. theres too much raw talent with his kid. he just needs to play more.

hes not ryan mcdonagh. hes still learning and working through his few wasted years in cbus where he regressed and fought his skills for 2 years.

hes a beautiful skater. turns his hips with ease. good stick skills and shows flashes of some offensive flair. he can rush the puck and recover seamlessly.

his problems still are in the def zone in unsettled situations where he runs around too much. he still needs to stop fighting his reads and be more instinctive when his back is to the net. hes go some learning still to do there.

but with mcd, staal, stralzie, girardi and now klein to learn from hes got a solid group to grow with. he can learn and watch how these guys manage both ends of the ice.

im a huge moore supporter. as much as i wanted del zaster and his sloth like "no way" game gone, i want this kid to succeed.

he fits the nyr strong skating mobile dman mold to a tee. over 6'1, athletic, fast and mobile seems to be the template for our dmen now. and all these guys can skate.

same with brady skjei- smooth stride and a great shot but more def ensive and calle andersson- the swede and another rh shot but with way more offensive ability than any other dman in the system. andersson has the skills to be a very solid pmd we so need.

keep an eye on andersson. hes flown under the radar and doesnt get much attention but this kid is a very good prospect.
