i like alot of what ive seen from moore the last few games. still a few goof ups, but moores been more confident with the puck and skating like crazy since del zottos been gone.

i think av and the staff is really expecting to get a 2 fer here. del zotto for klein and a revitalized john moore.

if that happens, then this team will be much improved.
The funny thing was MDZ didn't improve at all, even after being pushed to the left side. Call it a gaffe, call it bad coaching, I'm convinced MDZ is just a mentally stupid player, especially when considering he has nearly 3 times the experience of Moore.

(I know the arguement here is that Moore couldn't crack CLB's top 6, therefore he was a terrible defenseman, but I want people with those opinions to think about how awful that environment was, and how it was probably better to be on the AHL affiliate Springfield Falcons, who were top in the league for the last 2 seasons.)
