Proven winner is meaningless since that's not an individual stat. Clutch scorer? Must have been some real dandies amongst those 10 goals he's scored total the past two seasons.
I like Moen. He's a young, decent, defensive forward. But too many around here think guys like him will be some sort of Godsend for our franchise. This Wings team has most of its bases covered. They have the grit and checking everybody here is suddenly complaining about. Burkie will do his thing, and Holland will do his.
PS. Moen played 16 minutes a game in a full season two years ago and managed to muster 8 points. 8. f*** me sideways with a lunchbox. How anybody can claim this guy can pick up what Hossa/Hudler/Sammy left behind is mindboggling to me.
Proven winner = stanley cup = experience = knows how to win, something you can never have enough of
Clutch scorer = 7 goals in 21 playoff games opposed to 11 in 82 reg. season games on route to a Stanley Cup... good things happen when you're role players chip in with timely goals
Like you said, he's a "young, decent, defensive forward", he also brings us another element we currently don't have in fisticuffs (I know it's crazy to some but it's still part of the game, even HOLLAND will admit that)
Nobody is looking to fill the void of Hossa/Hudler/Sammy, funny you left out TOMAS KOPECKY because that's the void he'd be filling
we could use a 4th line plugger and Moen will be relatively cheap... no one else brings the complete package like he does ... no one is saying he's a godsend just that he's probably the best suited player available for that role
