There's no reason not to bring him back. Hartford could use him for sure.

There's a big reason. Limited to zero NHL upside. I sincerely hope we move past this belief that he somehow has the potential to be a solid NHL player.

There are plenty of those types at Hartford. Moore competes and he's a veteran presence for a young team that doesn't have much leadership. I don't have a problem with the Rangers keeping him for another year. You can't have a minor league team without a couple of leaders on it.

Why can't he be a depth guy for the bottom 2 lines? He is a responsible defensive player with good speed.

If you are looking for somebody for the top 2 lines then you are looking at the wrong guy but as a depth player moore doesn't hurt..

Chances are we dont' see him this season and he is a hartford guy but there is no reason to bash the signing or the player...

Whether he ever makes it in the NHL, you need players who can play down in the "A". It helps our prospects, and thats all you need to know.

solid signing.....sather needs to get creative again and make a few trades to open up some spots in the AHL and the NHL for players who deserve higher spots or else the rangers will ruin good prospects because they cant have enough ice time when they need a lot to improve

He can't be a good depth guy because he's not good at anything. He's not NHL level in one single aspect of his game. He's also a very mediocre skater. Don't see why you think he has good speed. Looked very average compared to everyone else.

Moore doesn't hit. Doesn't score. Doesn't play great defense. Doesn't fight. Doesn't have great passing skills or vision. I'm not talking about in the AHL. I'm talking about NHL level skills in those areas. I mean, really -- do you really want another Marcel Hossa (though one who's decidedly lesser skilled in defense and puck possession) on the team?

That's why you have players on AHL deals. Not NHL deals.

There is no reason to have this guy signed to a NHL contract.

I've been a detractor of his since his college days. He's just not NHL caliber. We need to start cutting players like him loose. We are at nearly 50 NHL contracts (if we aren't already there).

No need for garbage players like Moore to be kept around.

I hear ya Jon, I don't think he's much of an NHL prospect. However, he is a good guy to have in Hartford; if nothing else, he can help our other prospects develop.

I just don't see the need to have a no-upside kind of guy on a NHL contract. Unless he's a bonafide AHL star (like PA Parenteau is), then who cares?

I'll be pretty furious, also, if this deal is more than a year.

You can worry about the 'deal' all you want, at the end of the day he's a 24 yr old injury callup(and btw, do we have a plethora of other legit choices on Hartford to chose from?) who makes Hartford better.

I don't see how AA, Korpikoski, Byers, and Jessiman aren't better call-ups. They all fit better niches than Moore does in any area.

Moore is not a NHL player and never will be an every day one. Again, these are the types of guys that should be signed to AHL deals. Not NHL deals.

I've gotta admit, though, that it's a complete laugher that he's #6 on our HF prospect list.

Jessiman? Come on now.....

Korps will make the team, so no worries there.

AA will probably be brought along slowly, he'll stay in Hartford and become a go to guy there.

That leaves Byers, who could also be considered with Moore as a callup - just depends on which kind of situation they need the callup to play in.

Again, Moore is only 24 yrs old. He's shown the ability to up his game, its not that much of a laugher. Remember when Pat Auferio was #6 on our prospect list, speaking of laughers

I did think 6 was wayyyyyy too high for him.

exactly...

For all the talk about about Jessiman, Greg Moore has done more as a pro then Jessiman.

This a depth signing...nothing more.....what's the problem with that?

I have no problem killing managment for the dumb things they've done this offseason but Moore isn't a bad signing or a good signing...it's a depth move...

To each his own..

I'm not getting into a debate about Greg Moore and the value he brings the wolfpack...

you want to cry about Greg Moore being resigned by my guest it is a move that's going to have almost zero effect on the big club this season...



Moore does a lot of good things for a depth player....

Value on the pack. It's good for the prospects to have a veteran like Moore around on the team like other posters above me have stated.

Yeah he plays Mr. Invisible quite well when he gets the call up, but he puts up good numbers in Hartford, so it's good for the pack.

why not re-sign him? There should be an open competion for spots on the 3rd and 4th lines..Let the best players win..Let guys like Jessiman, Mooore, Byers, Korp battle with 4th liners like Sjostrom, Orr, Riismiller, Voros,(none are anything higher) etc..That's the way will get the best we can on the 4th line and maybe one can surpise om the 3rd lie(bu doubtful) if we keep this same weak line-up....

If he plays a game this year, that means we've had ALOT of injuries..

this guy is buried on the depth chart, and rightfully so.

So did Dawes when he made the team out of camp 2 years ago. He did nothing and got sent down. There were people saying he's too small and that he'll never play for the Rangers, he'll be traded, yada yada yada. Now most people consider Dawes for the top 2 lines.

I think people write Moore off because of his age, but he played 4 years at Maine before starting his pro career. He's played 2 years for the Pack and here are his numbers:

2006-07 79 games 8 goals 17 assists
2007-08 72 games 26 goals 40 assists

That's a significant improvement from his rookie year. People can say he'll never be an NHL player, but he didn't get all those callups last year for nothing. He must have some ability to play at this level. I doubt he'll ever be top 6, but I see no reason why he can't be a solid 3rd or 4th liner. Yeah, I know we already have too many of those, but he is still a player of value, even if his value to us is only realized as part of a trade.

i think moore will be the first call-up again this season....he is a solid overall player with size....i could also see him getting traded as he has value considering he puts up points, pk's, can play center and wing, and is 6'3......i have a feeling that a lot of teams would be interested in him

why not see what voros betts moore line would do in camp, i think betts and moore would work well together.
