In the playoffs, Moore had 3 goals, 5 assists, an average of 13:27 per game and was 54.5% on faceoffs. The Rangers had 44.9% of the shot attempts when Moore was on the ice at 5 on 5 in the playoffs.
Earlier in the season, Adam Graves, who first met Moore in Rangers training camp in 2000, praised Moore for the kind of person he is.
Graves told the NY Times, "you can’t say enough about his dedication, work ethic and the quality person he is. He’s the type of player everyone can learn from.”
Moore told the paper that during Training Camp in 2000, Graves made sure to come by the young guys and tell them they were doing a good job. He added that the support he got from Graves in that moment was "tremendous" and that he hopes he can have the same kind of leadership role with the younger players.
Asked on Monday about his future, Moore said "I would love to be back, it was a lot of fun to be here this year and especially after coming back from time off it was a very rewarding year in a lot of ways and hopefully we can sort through that." (Rangers)
Adam Rotter: I think that Dom Moore is pretty much a lock to come back. He chose to return to the Rangers after his year off and did nothing to give the team any reason to move on from him. He was effective in his fourth line role, as a PKer and can step up into bigger roles in small doses. His leadership though is one big reason why I think he will be back, especially if Brad Richards is bought out. Moore leads by example and has an inspiring story and losing him, on top of losing Richards, would be a big blow o the locker room. I think a two-year deal for more worth around $1.5 million or so would be perfect for both sides.
