He's been a scorer at every level of hockey he's ever played at. He was a key piece of the Cornell Big Red's ECAC championships both in 2003 and 2005. When he got called up for his cups of coffee in LA he was scoring around a point a game in the AHL. Then he came to the Islanders and had 3 straight 30+ goal seasons. Even with a guy like Tavares, you can't be a stiff. He came in and put up 30 goals his very first full season and followed it up with no sophomore slump, just two more straight seasons of 30+ goals. Tell me, who on the Islanders scored 30 goals this season? No one. If it was all about playing with Tavares, some other stiff would've taken his place and become an instant 30 goal scorer.
This is very fair. And I would not compare him to Ryder. If Ryder doesn't score, he is a negative to your team. He has no speed, can't play decent defense, kills a breakout. He has his shot. That's it and it better go in or else.
Moulson can score sure, but if he's not, he has speed, can get in on the forecheck, PK, and disrupt the opponents with his speed.
I think he's gonna get a 5/30 deal and I don't love that at all but I don think he's a stiff
