Not bad I guess. Don't know why we wouldn't bring back Boyle.

The only differences between Moore and Boyle are money, size and speed. Boyle bigger, Moore is faster. Both are good on face-offs, good defensively and excellent penalty killers. I'd sooner put the extra money into a top 4 RD.

One other similarity, both have played for Leafs, Rangers and Tampa.

Even though I liked what Boyle brought to the playoffs, I must say I always loved Moore when he was here. Always the hustle and trying and will be a great 4th line acquisition for us. I like the moves so far, not breaking the bank but getting a little faster and a better D man.  Small moves now Lou, small moves

Glad to have him.

Had no idea... very sad. The big C... that Moore house should have six little Moorelets running around in it. But that's life.

I remember back when that all happened for the both of them, absolutely heartbreaking to see as a hockey fan, never mind living it.

May Dominic Moore have the best professional year of his life and welcome back!!!

I remember this thread:

Now, circa 2017,  Dominic Moore's a Maple Leaf again.  Wishing him nothing but the best.

Lost track of him when he left.  Is he still fast?  If so I like that out of the 4th line and penalty kill.

In the few games I saw, he's still fast and an intelligent player. I'm really curious about who was the driving force behind this signing. It's a clear departure from "tough" 4th line players. A 4th line with Moore, Soshnikov, Kapenen is much better than a bruising 4th line.

I wonder how much -- or if -- this will impact Martin's TOI.

Clips of all his goals from last season: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w9so8D2sK4c

Hard to say for sure, but it looks like he can definitely still skate in those. There were a few goals off the rush there where he got some good separation from the defence.

Boston's SBNation blog was also very complimentary of him in their season end review: https://www.stanleycupofchowder.com/2017/6/7/15683536/dominic-moore-bruins-report-card-fourth-liner-was-great-for-the-bruins-this-season-veteran-nhler
