Bucci gives props to Moore

Because of their early success, the Wild have been unable to develop a real world-class talent other than Marian Gaborik. The 25-year-old forward is one of the most talented players in the NHL. If he could somehow play 78-82 games, he would sniff 50 goals. He has also produced in the postseason. No player is more exhilarating to watch in the open ice than Gabby. It appears Dominic Moore (17 goals, 21 assists in 156 NHL games) will center Gaborik and Pavol Demitra. On the surface, Moore seems like an odd guy with those numbers to center the top line, but Moore has good speed, he wins faceoffs and obviously knows how to play all three zones.
