Mark my words, Moen will be like Ben Eager of the Oilers this season. He will be waived next season because of his non-fighting antics(despite his loss to Neil tonight), and he will be replaced by another player, like Brown in Edmonton. As for the line-up, Halpern probably skates twice as fast as Bluden and 3 times as fast as Armstrong, so I would rather have an experience guy in there. As for DD and Patches, bench them both. Can't stand their perimiter play.
I can't quite decide if Moen is as bad as I feel he is. He still seems to take his PK shifts and contribute ok in a 4th liner kind of way. Is it just that I have higher expectations for him based on last year? I don't know. I feel like we gave him a juicy contract that was rooted in our need for bigger physical-er players, however, and he's just not even meeting my expectations in that respect. He still seems to be going through the motions to me. He knows the motions of "generic 4th liner" well enough to kind of get away with it. But I want more. I don't really want Blunden instead, though. I don't know that he even knows the motions.
This thread reminds me of when Zednik was hit by McLaren, Therrien was enraged and nearly got into a fight with Robbie Ftorek (Carbo calmed Therrien), but the Therrien threatened Ftorek to send Matt O'Dette after them... Matt ****ing O'Dette... aahh good memories hahaha (except seeing Zednik on the ice, twas horrible, a bit like Eller... )
