Moen is expected to reach a deal to say in Montreal soon. From Renaud Lavoie of RDS:
Ya if it came down to it and Holland had to, trade Abby & Quincey..especially if he signs a Moen or Prust. I think even Gausted would be an upgrade to Abby (more expensive, but indeed an upgrade) Besides if Holland cannot get Parise, that is all the more cash available for a Gausted...
I love Abby and it's great that he is a Muskegon kid, but I think that Detroit looks better with:
Suter/Schultz/Gausted/Moen vs. Suter/Quincey/Abdelkader... I think Abby would flourish in a city like Phoenix or Anaheim.
I am not changing my dream roster to add Moen and Gausted, but I sure as hell would not be disappointed!
Marc Bergevin told me he's confidant to make a deal with Travis Moen this week.
And Gausted basically did jack for Nashville in the playoffs other then win faceoffs. If some other team wants to match the $3m a year he wants, more power to 'em.
