If Moller is valuable as trade bait, it's because he's a valuable prospect with a lot of promise.

this post reminds me why i hate the trade proposal sections of the HF boards. It's just a bunch fans making up fake deals that all involve the prospects that haven't panned out as quickly as they thought. or includes the teams whipping boy. In exchange for the the others teams top player that their team needs.


But i agree with the poster Moller is "trade bait" cause there a good chance her turns out to be a 20 plus goal scorer in NHL.

He used to give me fits any time the Kings played Vancouver.
That is my primary memory of Ronning. KING KILLER. He could stick handle in a crowded phone booth, and with his skating, he would alwyas manage to part our defenemen like the Red Sea for Moses

I think if Moller was going to be traded, it would have happened by now.

It's my impression that DL & staff are in love with the kid and want to keep him.

He broke into the NHL as a 20 year old and within three seasons, appeared in 82 NHL games. In those 82 games, he scored 10 goals and 25 points. When he was 23, he scored 11 goals and 15 points in 30 games. He was 24 when he finally broke through and netted 32 goals and 60 points in 78 games. A season later, he is traded.

Oscar Moller broke into the NHL as a 20 year old and appeared in 40 games, scoring 7 goals and 15 points. In his next season as a 21 year old, Moller scored 7 points in 34 games. That's 11 goals and 22 points in his first 74 games. The player I mentioned above took parts of three seasons to reach 25 points, when he was 22.

The player I'm talking about is Daniel Briere.
Moller reminds me of Martin Straka. Anybody that's small and will still drive to the net or go crashing into the boards is OK in my book. The rest of his game will come around eventually but he's already shown he has heart, I would be very hesitant trading Oscar Moller.

I like the comparison, except I think Straka had a little more foot speed.
