That's 3 second rounders. 4 picks in the top 60 is pretty good.
Sad to see Moore go. A 3rd line center is replaceable but he was a great fit here. A 2nd rounder is what he's been traded for in the past so it is good value. Hopefully something will be done to fix that 3rd line this offseason.
Connolly should get more minutes now too.

"We acted very quickly, but it's not something we've been working on for a long time."
"We acquired Minnesota's 2nd round pick, don't know where that will end up to be, we just felt it's a high pick that is too valuable to pass on."
"Having those picks gives us a lot of options. We're not going to go out and trade those picks for unrestricted free agents, but we know we can use them in June to select young players, potentially use those to move up in the draft, or use those to acquire prospects that are closer to playing in the NHL."
Very good return for Moore. The pick will hopefully be in the top 40 and it wouldn't surprise me if it's used in a package to acquire a goalie if Yzerman goes the trade route. Moore was a good player here and I wouldn't mind Yzerman bringing him back in the summer if he wants to come back.
We now have 4 picks in the first two rounds (3 2nd rounders). That's huge. If SFY gets another top-60 pick for Kubina or even Malone and/or Clark... It also gets us a better chance to perhaps trade up for another 1st rounder. *drool*
Good luck to Dominic, he's a warrior. Maybe we'll see him on our team again next season.
