What Moore signing means for B’s

For a few years now, the Boston Bruins have been looking for stability through the entire lineup . During their Stanley Cup runs of 2011 and 2013, the B’s were able to roll all four lines meaning all the lines were effective in doing what they needed to do. Playing hard was one of the hallmarks of those teams. This offseason, it seems the B’s are trying to build their forward group into what it used to be. Bringing in David Backes and now Dominic Moore allows them a lot of versatility especially lower in the lineup and hopefully this takes pressure off the defense that is still full of holes. Fortunately guys like Backes, Moore and Ryan Spooner can also play the wing as well as center which helps in terms of lineup flexibility. The signing of Moore to me at least, means that Spooner likely will be put on the wing so he doesn’t have as much responsibility defensively and he can focus on the stronger part of his game. While the signing of Moore isn’t a sexy one by any means, it certainly will help the B’s find more stability in their lineup.
