The way I see it, any player that can help the Leafs in 3 or 4 years is worth keeping. (Kabby, Antro) Any player who will be past their prime in that timeframe is worth trying to trade. (Kubina, Blake) My question is, where does Dominic Moore fit in to this equation? Burke says you build a team by placing talent at the top and letting the other players settle into depth roles. I don't think there is any question that Moore is not a top 6 guy on a contending team, but he has done all that has been asked of him and more for this year's Leafs. He is the one Leaf I can say I have never seen take a shift off. (Hagman is a close second) Moore is only 28 and I would think would stick around for a reasonable price and would be a great 3rd liner on an improved squad. So, can we get a prospect or draft pick that will grow into a top 6 guy in 3 years, or do we keep Moore?
