Devils sign Ian Moran...

22 posts in this topic

I was looking on Yahoo! Sports this morning (not the most reliable source for NHL info), and noticed this:

http://sports.yahoo.com/nhl/players/1290

Well, actually, I noticed in the Transaction section that the Devils signed Ian Moran. Did this happen a long time ago and I just didn't notice? Or is this recent? Or is Yahoo! wrong? I keep up with the Devils' signings, and would like to think that I didn't miss something as notable as our acquiring a new defenseman.

Really.... I can't believe I didn't notice that...

Sorry for the extra post, then!

Citing another forum is hardly substantiating a rumor. Besides, Nieds is on contract with the Ducks until he retires they aren't gonna trade a Cup star.

It's all part of Lou's devious plan to replace good defencemen with cheap knock-offs that have the same first letter in their name and the same jersey number. Our top pairing will be #28 Rachunek and #7 Moran.

Never mind the little detail of Neid's salary implications.

Where was Moran last year? His stats say he played one game.... was he injured?

Yeah youd have to be some kind of an idiot to let a player of his caliber walk on you.....

Moran will be playing in Lowell, but if a Dman goes down, I hope they bring Moran up before Oduya. Moran is a veteran and could show some leadership here.

I'd easily take Oduya over Moran. Moran really is a utility man at best and hasn't seen legitimate NHL time in nearly five years. Yes, he will be playing in Lowell, and I like it that way -- if we have a emergency, then by all means call Ian or Jean-Luc up, but other than that, they both will stay in Lowell and actually give a bit of leadership and depth to a severely depleted AHL team.

hes the replacement for Dan Mcgillis, former Bruin that will do absolutely nothing for the big club

I really liked McGillis, though. I thought he was one of the Devils' better signings in... well, I'd say easily in the last 5 years or so!

:rolleyes:
