Rangers interested in Dominic Moore

Katie had an ESPN chat today

I believe the Rangers will look into the possibility of acquiring Dominic Moore. Need a depth defenseman as well. Thought Paul Ranger was on radar before, but that ship may have sailed

Moore is a group III. His wife was diagnosed with liver cancer last April. Moore didn't sign anywhere in the summer. His wife's health will probably determine his playing future.

I'd bring Moore back in a second. Better third line fit that Pyatt in my opinion. Definitely would help solidify bottom six.

Terrible news for Moore who was a very solid Ranger. Wish he and his family nothing but the best. He is a good player if he decides to play again

That's awful. I wouldn't be surprised if he sat out for the season.

That said, I would be fine with giving Moore a contract. He's a good player.

The Rangers looked into signing Moore in 2009 when Brandon Dubinsky was holding out. Moore filed for salary arbitration in 2006 and Sather traded him. Sather always liked him.

The Moores are genuinely good people.

I'd be glad to have Dominic back, can play multiple positions (Kill penalties) including push Boyle for the 3rd line center spot.

Moore would be a VERY solid addition to this team. Consummate professional, great PKer, can play wing or center, provides jam that Torts likes.

have grown to not be a fan of him in recent years, but for the same reason would probably love him back on the rangers...easily the best player available imo.

So is this something she's actually heard, or just an educated guess? Hard to tell.

I'd take Dom back, no problem.

First off, condolences to the Moores, very sad news. Secondly, I loved him here as a Ranger. I know some people have a sour taste in their mouth about his comments after he left the Rangers, but I will keep repeating the story of when I had the honor of meeting him. I had an amazing chance to go to the Rangers locker room, met a bunch of the players, had small talk, but with Moore, I had a what, maybe 40 minute solid conversation, he kept asking questions, seemed very down to earth, we kept talking even after the rest of the team was almost gone. I really liked him as a player for the Rangers, and he is an awesome guy.

I'd be happy to take him back, but I can't imagine that he's ready to jump on the ice this week after the tragedy he's gone through.

I'd be on board with this. Would at least give us another option for 3rd line C and make up for some of the PK we lost with Dubi and Ani gone.

Always had the impression that Dominic was a good dude, and very intelligent.

I could care less about his comments.

Sports fans, especially New York sports fans, and Rangers fans can be extreme doosh bags in their treatment of players.

Moore is a very solid player. He would absolutely make this roster stronger. But this doesn't look like a real option anymore.

Hopefully he and his family are able to get through this hard time.

This is such an unfortunate thing and my prayers do go out to him however... Was it not Pyatt who's girlfriend was killed in a car accident and he hasn't quite been the same player since? As cruel as it sounds but you would worry about something like this hurting his play. The best thing for him would be to sit out the season and take some time to mentally recover.

Brooks mentions NYR looing for a depth F which does make sense as they can keep all the current players in CT down for call up options. Whoever gets signed likely is a spare anyway

I would be fine with Moore, man his brother gets clocked by Bertuzzi then this, tough stuff.

I am fine with Winchester, Moore, Fehr, Dvorak,etc as long as they come cheap

On serious note, sad news for Dom and his family. Really feel for the guy.

Not the greatest at understanding his market value though. Pretty sure he turned down lucrative deal from Toronto to test open market only to see offers for a fraction of that price in UFA marketplace. He was a good Ranger. Works and skates hard. Not the best passer but a good penalty killer and a guy who churns those legs. Wouldn't be the worst move in the world.

EDIT: Do remember those comments he made post-Rangers now. If Torts and Slats are okay with it, I guess I would be, too. Even if they seemed to characterize 1998-2004 Rangers more than 2005-2012. Can't even say pre/post lockout anymore. Too confusing.
