I like this. It goes to the players strengths. Helps out where help is needed. And balances the lines too.

John Moore has a future here? Dear lord.

If AV wants to win hockey games DZ is the better choice over Moore, in my opinion.

There's your weekly pointless fact courtesy Fitzy.
hmm...interesting (strokes beard)

We have been playing pretty well the last few weeks, and it seems as though we might be turning the corner.

Cue 9-2 Pens victory and Chicken Little entering stage right.

So you're telling me the difference between winning and losing games comes down to MDZ vs. John Moore? hahaha yeah no.

It's obviously not the difference. But DZ is a better player than Moore, so he does give you a better chance to win (not much, but it's there).

Both have been pretty awful this year, but MDZ has been more of a liability.

I, again, strongly disagree.

I'd rather have neither play.

Indeed. And if we want to trade MDZ it is probably good to play him as well.

Moore is honestly at best a 1-2 year stopgap on the third pairing, so it isn't like he is a core piece that we need to groom. Stick him in the pressbox until MDZ is traded.

The only way you could be more of a liability than John Moore is literally shooting pucks into your own net.

Log jam, albeit of second/third line tweeners. Not a bad problem to have. Wonder if a trade will be made, or if Miller is going to be sent back to the AHL for the rest of the season.

They are both terrible, and both have played noticeably worse under AV than Torts. Moore looked pretty good out there, last year, (albeit in a small sample size) and MDZ seemed to settle in a bit under Torts. It seems both are completely lost out there, these days.

I KNOW you're not new here

It's the yo-yo year for Miller whether we like it or not.

Was just looking at our players' offensive zone starts/finishes

http://www.behindthenet.ca/nhl_stati...34+45+46+63+67

Have to give a lot of praise to the Boyle-Moore-Dorsett, who consistently start outside and carry the puck into the offensive zone.
At that point, they come off, and our other guys come on, and get a ridiculous amount of offensive zone starts, but manage to waste it.

Tonight sounds like Hagelin-Richards-Zuccarello, Kreider-Stepan-Nash, Pouliot-Brassard-Callahan, Boyle-DMoore-Dorsett. Same six D. Lundqvist

Boyle-Moore-Dorsett have been extremely solid lately. They deserve a lot of credit.

I agree that DZ is a better short term option but you have to consider the fact that Moore is on an entry level contract and will be far cheaper than DZ going forward. Rangers only have McD and Staal signed for next season. We're stuck with him.
