Dominic Moore: Past News Updates ( ▲ View most recent update )
RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Moore is one of those role guys who helps a great team win. He has the speed to irritate opponents and open up lanes, too, and his hands are decent enough, as well. His focus this offseason has been on his family -- his wife is fighting a rare form of liver cancer -- so he's hasn't signed with any team yet. His role will be defined once he commits to a team; we'll be able to better gauge his value then.
Mr. Moore is a perfect third-line center. He's off-the-chart smart, fast and has decent enough hands to drain a few every once in a while. His hockey IQ allows him to jump up on the wing beside guys like Steven Stamkos and Marty St. Louis, or lead the charge on the penalty kill. He's a role guy who has finally found his niche (aside from that year in Toronto, of course) and he's just the kind of player a team with Cup aspirations needs to propel them to success. His position makes him a tough add in fantasy, though -- he just doesn't deliver enough of anything in any one category to make him worthy in any but the deepest of non-positional leagues.
Moore is a cerebral centerman whose value on the ice far outstrips his fantasy worth. He's outstanding in the faceoff circle and can kill penalties with aplomb. His biggest value, though, comes as a buffer for Vinny Lecavalier. Moore is the ultimate team man who'll do whatever is asked including the defensive-zone dirty work that has seemed to tax Vinny's game. That just won't translate into points ... unless your last name is Lecavalier.
Moore is smart, fast and responsible. But his hands and creativity aren't even NHL average. He's one of those guys you like to have on the ice but not on a fantasy squads. But he is fun to watch.
Moore's strengths are back-checking and playing a defense-first game, which is why it was a surprise he didn't get much ice time when he came over from Pittsburgh in a late-season trade. He'll try to carve out a role on the third or fourth line, but doesn't offer much fantasy upside as a defensive-minded player on a defensive-minded team.
Acquired in exchange for a 2007 3rd-round pick, Moore will be used primarily in a penalty-killing role with Pittsburgh. The 26-year-old center scored 18 points (9,9) while playing in all 82 games for the Rangers.
Another good looking prospect in the Rangers' system, Moore brings tenacity and feistiness on the ice, relentlessly back-checking and playing a defense-first game. It may be awhile before we'll see Moore at the garden, but he certainly fits into the Rangers 'new' organizational philosophy: develop and nurture young high-ceiling prospects. Bearing any setbacks, Moore should be a good one; he may need another year in the AHL, but realistically we should see him full-time on the club 2006-07.
