Matt Moulson Drawing Lots Of Interest

Matt Moulson has already been traded once this season. Now it looks more and more like that he will be traded again at least before the March 5 NHL Trade Deadline.

With at least 12 teams in the running for Moulson, Botta is right. It is only a matter of time before Moulson is moved. As soon as a deal comes in that GM Tim Murray likes, the deal will be made.

Moulson was part of the deal that sent Thomas Vanek to the New York Islanders that also netted the Buffalo Sabres a first- and second-round pick. With Moulson soon to be moved, they will get even more assets.

Eklund of reports that two of the top teams in on Moulson are the Los Angeles Kings and Vancouver Canucks. I would not be surprised if the Pittsburgh Penguins are involved as they are still looking to replace Pascal Dupuis, who is out for the rest of the season.

Matt Moulson rose to where he is because he was playing with John Tavares on Long Island. While some asked whether he was only playing well because of that fact or he was good on his own merit, his play has obviously not dampened the amount of interest in him.

The Sabres will more than likely be looking for either a prospect or what would more than likely be a second-pick.

As the Trade Deadline nears, expect Moulson to be one of the first that gets moved.

    I really like Moulson and what he brings to the Sabres – leadership, skill and mentoring. But, I also realize his value and I know the Sabres need to get as much as they can for him. I can see him filling in for Dupuis and you know Bflo could do him a favor trading them to Pitts so he could play with Sid. What might work for Bflo is trading Moulson for Niskanen and Blueger.
    According to Hockeysfuture, Blueger is a 19/20 year old Latvian who has played in North America since he was 14, Teddy Blueger is a skilled forward who possesses dynamic stick-handling and puck distribution abilities. Spending four years at Shattuck St. Mary’s prep school, Blueger already has many key aspects of his game well refined, such as his ability to take faceoffs and protect the puck. It is his silky puck-moving ability however that sets him apart from other prospects. He is able to move through traffic with ease, as though the puck was attached to his stick. He also plays with a fair amount of physical flair, and is not afraid to get dirty in the corners or down low.
    He’s a center and wouldn’t cost the Penguins much to get Moulson now.

      I wouldn’t give the Penguins the time of day let alone Moulson for another unproven, maybe someday prospect!

    Wow, we might get a prospect or a draft pick for Moulson. Won’t that be nice, we can rebuild the team around another prospect. I’m so excited I could sh-t!
