Moller has scored 11 goals and 11 assists in the NHL.
Parse hase scored 11 goals and 13 assists in the NHL.
They have both proven that they can score at the NHL level with the exception that OM was given a considerably greater opportunity to do so (maybe rightly so).
To me they are truly both bubble players who have yet to actually prove themselves as capable NHLers.
for me the answer is pretty easy... i don't consider either to be solid NHL hockey players. though i feel that all things considered, Oscar has a bit more top end to his game and his almost exclusively limited by his overall size (tho there are a few other mitigating factors in terms of his fit in Los Angleles).
you can look at Moller and see a little Daniel Briere there. especially if you remember how Briere began his career. whereas you can look at Scott Parse, and you see... well you see Scott Parse... and all the other Scott Parses that came before him.
I think when both were drafted the Kings assumed they would grow a little. Neither has.
Moller has speed, but isn't NHL quick and many times arrives a tad too late. And when he does get there late he gets hammered.
As far as injuries, it will be those on other clubs that will give him the better opportunity to be traded and play elsewhere.
Wrong. I dont think they drafted these guys thinking they would grow a few more inches and I don't think they're done. They aren't NHL ready quite yet and there's no real room for them anyways. Another year in the AHL for both wouldn't be the end of the world for anybody.
