as for my lines (if i was gm/coach)
id sign rucinsky and mcammond (mcammond may play lw, but he can also play center which is very important should moore or helminen not be good enough in camp mcammond gets the 3rd line center job)
id then trade purinton out west for a late or conditional pick
I like Jan's lines and also like bringing back Rosie for Nylander's left.
I doubt this season if there is any at all will be an 82 game schedule so smart management will take advantage of a lockout shortened season if they finnally resolve this come January and use this year to ride the kids and let them get the kinks out with some heavy doses of meaningful minutes at the NHL level and with an extremely deep draft coming up we will be served twofold in that we're letting our kids get the experience they so desperately need and we assure ourselves with some highend picks once again next year to help speed along the rebuilding process.
You really don't know if he will fail, you're guessing.
Read any scouting report. Read any interview with anyone in the organization. Watch games that Moore has played in. Then come back to me and tell me he has a good chance of not only being a 2nd line center in the NHL, but being a good enough one to deserve 15-17 minutes a game.
