I just don't see the opportunity for him to get to 7 or so, never mind 10. I'd say 4-5 is much more reasonable.
if richards doesnt bounce back, i would rather have moore on the pp. last season the pp looked good the few times he was on it.

Agreed. Moore wasn't afraid to shoot the puck and has a nice one timer.

I think you'd be very surprised. At the highest level, an athlete is an athlete. As a disabled athlete, that's not my level, but these guys don't mess around.

DZ and Stralman should definitely get PP time no questions asked. McD, Moore, Richard and Staal and Brassard are the point options for the PP. McD and Staal could probably thrive there as both definitely have untapped offensive potential, however im not so sure overloading these guys with more minutes would be a good idea. Moore playing on the 3rd pairing and PP time would not overwork him and could be very successful. in the end i really dont care who AV uses as long as its not Girardi.

PLEASE AV KEEP GIRARDI AWAY FROM THE PP

Of all the Rangers defensemen, Girardi is the most likely to actually get the puck on goal. It's a very underrated part of his game. There's a reason he scored 10 goals a couple of years ago. That being said, we need Girardi rested for other parts of the game, so I don't really want to see him on the PP too much either.

Let's keep this thread on topic. There are other threads for PP and general team discussion. Thanks.

I think 10 would be a disappointment. I'm expecting Norris caliber stats

Expecting 10 goals is not ridiculous at with a real offensive system if he plays the point on the PP. Again, people on this board made the same mistake with Moore that they did with Brassard. Going off of what they saw in Columbus and what Jackets fans said about him. The Jackets are a horribly run organization. The top picks on that team have had little to no help. You saw what Brassard did with a better supporting cast. The Rangers stole Moore. His offensive upside is very high.

anywhere from 4 to 8 goals is my thought. He won't see much power play time YET (barring injuries), but he'll get half of his goals on that.

Can we stop with OFFENSIVE SYSTEM? AV doesn't employ an offensive system.

Anyway, I think he will get between 3 and 5 if he plays and gets opportunities on the PP

He's plays an offensive system AFTER his defense is solid...

Thing is, our defense is one of the top 5 in the league. Offense will come, not to worry

Girardi's ability to get a puck on net rivals MDZ's.

Girardi has the hardest shot.... he is far from accurate with his shot... I think even hitting the boards with the puck is a problem for him sometimes

Brassard has played 2 dozen games in a Rangers uniform. Going to need to see a lot more and see it consistently before jumping on that train.

10 goals from a guy who hasn't breached 2 in an NHL season is pretty optimistic. Lot of "if" conditions (being on the PP at all; AV's super-ultra-high-octane offensive system that will obviously fit perfectly to all the Rangers) to be satisfied in addition to Moore actually capitalizing/getting lucky bounces.

Honestly though, it's always looked like Girardi's MO is those wide shots in hopes of someone in front of the net getting the rebound/garbage goal. Relatively sure he's been told to shoot the way he does; when he actually does get shots on goal, they're pretty quality shots.

The real joke is the Rangers having someone in front of the net. The secondary joke is having someone scrappy enough to battle for a loose puck.

I think 4 - 6 with about 18-23 points would be realistic. Anything else is gravy for such a young kid.

Moore reminds me of a more aggressive and a more defensively sound Tom Poti.

I'll say over if we change the thread to read "10 goals for John Moore's career."

I don't really see that. Poti had a lanky build, and was master of the poke check. He played a different sort of game to me. He didn't seem to have any physical edge to his game either.

John Moore reminds me a lot more of Ryan McDonagh. He has the same slick skating, a similar build, he can be physical but you don't really look at him as an overly physical crease clearer. He can make some plays offensively, but he's never going to be Erik Karlsson or Brian Leetch. I'm not saying that he'll be as good as McDonagh, but I think he'll develop into a similar player style wise. I'd say he becomes a 2nd pairing 30ish points type of guy.

Hence why I said Moore as a more aggressive Tom Poti. Very similar skating styles with a very soft touch on the puck.

McD is built like a tank and that's why he has that nick name. The guys lower body is as as solid as they come which contributes to his stellar 2-way game, not so much the case with Moore. McD is fast but his skating is not as soft and smooth as a Moore or Poti, while Moore doesn't have that lower body physique you see with McD.
