Moen is the exact type of player we need. For those calling Moen a fighter, he is not. He's a good third line player or an excellent 4th liner who can check hard, play responsible defence and fight when need be. I have to agree with those who feel Moen might be a sought after asset - as teams are always looking to add big bodies for the playoffs.

I personally would trade Oreo for Moen - that's not a bad deal for either side. Oreskovich is a big boddy that Montreal could use as they continue to be a smaller team. Oreo is a good player and I think could thrive in a place like Montreal - just isn't working out here for him though.

In my humble opinion, this team's biggest need at moment is on defense. Moen, Gaustad, etc don't solve that.

The Canucks have one of the deepest forward groups in the league (if not the deepest), why spend your precious little cap space further improving it when you have bigger needs at D?

If the goal is to acquire toughness, getting a big and strong 2nd/3rd pairing d-man would serve that purpose. He'd also play more minutes than a bottom-6 forward, so you'd have that toughness on the ice more often.

Anyway, Moen would be great, but not if it means missing out on a defenseman.

I agree, another Salo type player - minus injuries - is the priority. The perfect D would play right side and be good defensively and contribute a bit to the offense. If the trade deadline goes perfectly a big, physical two ways RWer would also be a good addition - someone like Doan would be much better than Moen.

Sedin Sedin Burrows
Higgins Kesler Booth
Raymond Hodgson Doan
Malhotra Lapperier Hansen
Weise

But I won`t be surprised if they stand pat at forward, unless the perfect fit becomes available.

They need both. They need a regular NHL 4th liner along with what you mentioned on D. That's why Gill and Moen make sense.

i think Phoenix may to ready to give up Derek Morris, though he has a no trade clause but he is on a decent contract 2.75 mill for two years beyond this year. Good skater, good shot, decent defensively at this point in his career, good size, though doesn't use it enough.

With Phoenix moving in the direction of younger dmen, he could definitely be had for cheap.
