In Topic: John Moore to NJD

Moore is a career -16 in +/-

 

Well he had a minus 11 last year and a minus 23 in his rookie year on a terrible Blue Jackets team during the 2011-2012 season so who knows what he'll do on a team with a decent at least goalie

There is going to be another lockout regardless of what happens in free agency.

All sports are going to a lock except maybe baseball because the owners know that the fans will come back and if they can get back a bigger percentage of the pie without losing the fans while hurting the players to do so why wouldn't they.

You're right, I was just frustrated at the rapid look into the future everyone seems to be doing. At least you're doing it from what's in front of you. 

 

I think they made good bets on the type of players they took, focusing more on skill and skating rather than size and brutness - Baddock and Rehill come to mind. 

 

I don't mind Blackwood's pick. If he was the highest guy on their board, he was the highest guy on their board. I can only imagine this might be Conte and Co's last year - but we'll see. 

 

We should know soon as you usually make scouting moves right after the draft because all the work is done

Ahh between the Pronger getting a job in the head office despite being under contract to an NHL team, this HOF thing despite not being retired and the HOME OF THE NHL cutting away from the 1st round its easy to see the NHL as bush league sometimes.

Feels like a B that can retroactively go to an A depending on how Blackwood does compared to the other goalies in this draft. If he is great and a heads above the rest it was a shrewd move. Anything else I would have rather waited and used it on another forward. Though if you told me one of the two picks would turn into a player with the skill of Kyle Palmeri I'd be happy with that draft.
