As a King's fan living in Alberta I was very excited when we signed him prior to last year. It was a low risk signing, and I thought he would add a lot of grit to our bottom 6 and thought he would be good on the PK.
Turns out it didn't work out, but I still think he was worth the risk.
Not my favorite player by any means, but i promised that i would post this after coming back from my vacation. BTW if anyone ever gets the chance to go to Sylvan Lake in July, make sure to bring some AC!!!
This from a co-worker who follows the boards from time to time but not have an account:
Oiler fans, don’t turn into ‘nucks or flames fans with short memories. Moreau was a leader here for years, well before his captaincy. He was a leader on and off the ice for years and deserves the credit for the majority of his career work. Cut him a little slack for the later years. We all lose a bit of effectiveness in the home stretch. Read the story below and when you get to the point about Disneyland, remember this conversation between Hailey’s dad and Ethan. Hailey’s dad said thank you, but we can afford to buy our own tickets; Ethan replied “I am pretty sure I can afford them too, and in a time like this you don’t need to”. It was because of Moreau’s actions towards my wife’s little cousin and her last wish that made me want to name my first Son Ethan. PS Hailey was buried wearing her jersey from big George, another short term memory whipping boy of Oiler fans. Remember true fans are loyal to a fault. Thanks for listening.
