I'll take Ethan Moreau on this team, I don't tihnk he has a cup(?), very physical, warrior type player and could be the perfect Dallas Drake for next season.


You're definitely on the money there. This would be a very similar pick-up to the Dallas Drake one. Hopefully the results would be the same.

You can never have enough guys who are willing to block shots and play hard minutes every night.

He's also known as 'POS' (piece of s***) by Edmonton fans. Apparently he sucks in pretty much every way.

I like the idea in your sig. I was thinking sometime that LGW should have a thread where users declare their current status on common issues on LGW. Maybe for like LGW census purposes, hehe.

The more I think about this, the more I love it... he's had a couple injury issues, but if he's bought out, he could come here on the cheap and I mean cheap, as he'll already get majority of his pay from Edmonton, add that to exactly what you said - will stand up for teammates, plays with heart and would bring that "Dallas Drake" mentality to the team and this could be a PERFECT fit...

I like the idea of Moreau for cheap for sure! he has always seemed to have a s*** tone of spirit out there, and always stands up for his teammates. I would also like to see him Abby and Big Bert on a destructive yet offensive line as well.Posted Image

Another perk is, that if we get him for cheap, we'd still likely have around a million or so for call-ups/deadline moves if needed... which is always nice...

I am not sure why the EDM fans think O'Sully is a pos, he was a fan favorite here in Manchester.

He has a ton of upside, in fact I am not sure why the Oil would buy him out, give the man a year to get accustomed, Penner wasn't a hit right away.

Teams forget that when they pick up a player who just had a decent year as a youngster, their teammates had a lot to do with it, and if your team sucks adding a decent player is not going to make your team instantly better, but it will make their stats instantly worse!

"When I was looking for a captain, I wanted a guy with the Red Wings crest tattooed on his chest," said former Detroit coach Jacques Demers, who named Yzerman captain in 1986. "Steve Yzerman was that guy."

“Told him if he wasn't ultra-competitive he couldn't come here. If he didn't bring it every day he couldn't come here, because he was going to hate it if he didn't, dislike the coach and dislike playing here.

If he can be had for less than 1mil, Moreau would be the perfect fit on the 4th line, he may not be the heavy that some feel we need, but he definitely has the Dallas Drake style of play, and we could absolutely use another hard-hitting, shot-blocking, gritty forward who will stand up for his teammates. As for the other players mentioned, no thanks.

Around 2007 and 2008 he was hurt, he had a bad eye injury I remember. But other then that the last 2 seasons he has played over 75 games which is good for a guy of his style.

The guy that punched Markov was either Moreau or Staios I don't really remember.

I'd be happy with Moreau,but I think were gonna go in the direction of a younger guy.

Edmonton fans detested his individual efforts. If they disliked players purely on the merit of them not producing on a terrible team, they'd detest nearly every player on the roster. With POS, they flat-out hated the guy in particular. It didn't have anything to do with the rest of the team.

Think of Lang in his last season here; he played on a great team, but was widely-disliked because he was horridly lazy and careless.

I remember watching a few Oiler's games where even I thought Patrick O'Sullivan was coasting and skating half-assed to the point where it left an impression and I don't even watch them all year... so if it stands out on a limited exposure to an unbiased 3rd party, it's gotta be pretty bad and I can imagine maddening for a home town fan (like Lang when he was here)

Ah man, why did you have to say Dallas Drake's name? I was just not getting used to him being gone and being okay with it. Now i miss him all over again! Man, was he good for the team or what? Didnt put up big numbers but man he played his ass off night in and night out for that damn cup! Any chance he wants to come out of retirement for one more cup?

It was then, against Detroit, when Moreau dislocated his shoulder throwing a punch at Danny Markov, who'd levelled Stoll with an open-ice hit.
