Per Larry Brooks, the Rangers have signed center Dominic Moore to a one-year contract worth $1 million. You may remember Moore played with the Blueshirts in 2005-2006. Moore sat out last season as a result of his late wife’s battle with rare liver cancer. Moore was someone we talked about signing before last season kicked off. Welcome back Dominic.

I’m flipping between the Devils game (MSG+) and the Penguins game (Vs), and I should note that Dominic Moore and Nik Antropov were both healthy scratches for Toronto, as was Mark Recchi for TB. GM Brian Burke said that they had deals on the table for both players.
Some more irresponsible rumor mongering from me, but with Zipay quoting Torts that the Rangers are looking for size, I can’t help but think Antropov is the big bodied scorer the Rangers made an offer for.
I personally don’t think the Rangers should be mortgaging future picks or prospects for this season. They simply aren’t built to compete with Boston or Washington in s 7 game series. That said, if they can dump some long term salary and resign Antropov, I’m all for it. I think I’m giving Sather too much credit there though.
A notable non-scratch was Miro Satan, who is in the lineup for Pittsburgh tonight despite being placed on waivers earlier today.
Also, a side note. I’ll be live blogging the trade deadline tomorrow. So check back often tomorrow.
We all remember the center on the popular HMO line, Dominic Moore. He was traded to Pittsburgh in the deal that brought Adam Hall to NY.
Ever wonder what he’s been up to recently? Well, he has found himself a home as the first line center in Toronto, centering Jason Blake and Ian White (ironically enough, Ryan Hollweg has found himself on this Maple Leaf team too). He is also having a breakout season, with 11 goals, 18 assists for 29 points in 49 games this year. This also includes a stretch of 6 points in the previous 3 games. He has impressed new GM Brian Burke enough that he is not being included in all the Maple Leaf trade rumors.
Moore was used primarily as a defensive and penalty killing specialist while in NY. He showed some offensive flair while in NY, netting 9 goals and 18 points while playing in a limited role. It’s good to see him getting more playing time and succeeded on both sides of the puck.
