Buzz: The Rangers Have Been Speaking With/Are Interested In Dominic Moore

In the NY Post, Larry Brooks writes that the Rangers have been talking with Dominic Moore about bringing him back to the Rangers.

He would become the Rangers fourth line center and allow the Rangers to either move Brian Boyle to the wing or make him available for trade.

Moore, 33, sat out this past season after his wife passed, who had a rare form of cancer, passed away.

Brooks writes that the Rangers had interest and held “extensive” talks with Moore prior to the lockout and says that he likely would have signed if his wife’s condition had allowed.

Moore was with the Rangers in 2005-06 and starred with Ryan Hollweg and Jed Ortmeyer on the fourth line.

In a poll asked last summer, 59% of readers thought the Rangers should bring back Moore.

THIS SECTION is about Dominic Moore.

Under Tom Renney in 2005-06, Moore had nine goals, nine assists and spent 3:34 on the PK.

Moore has been well over 50% on faceoffs since leaving the Rangers after the 05-06 season.

Brooks notes that if the Rangers do not sign Moore, they could look at Max Lapierre who was the fourth line center for Alain Vigneault in Vancouver.
