Dominic Moore

Fantasy Impact: Tampa Bay has signed gritty center Dominic Moore to a two-year contract.


The Lighting get: A speedy, hardworking center to play behind Vincent Lecavalier and Steven Stamkos. Moore can play in all situations and he also has enough offensive ability to fill in on a scoring line from time to time. Another solid move by Steve Yzerman (I know we all want him to succeed and may be a bit favourable when evaluating him, but he has done a splendid job this summer).


Fantasy Players Impacted: Moore will primarily play a shutdown role on Tampa Bay’s third line. However, even with limited power play time he still will record 35 to 45 points. Stamkos and Lecavalier both must love this move, as Moore will handle all of the tough matchups and checking assignments each night.


Tampa Bay didn’t have a set third line center before this signing. Marc Pouliot will probably slide down to the fourth line. Third line wingers like Johan Harju, Dana Tyrell, Paul Szczechura, and Teddy Purcell now have a quality playmaker to line up with.


Fantasy Players this deal helps, in order:

1. Lecavalier/Stamkos

2. Teddy Purcell

3. Johan Harju


Fantasy Players this deal hurts, in order:

1. Pouliot

2. Nate Thompson

3. Niklas Persson

... Another good move by Stevie Y! Too many coaches and teams forego spending any effort on their checking lines.

... I think this is exactly the situation i think we all assumed he would land in. so it is kind of a wash to me unless you really thought he was not going to find a home on a 3rd line in the NHL
