Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Damien Cox of the Toronto Star,
As a waiver pickup last winter, Moore stands as one of John Ferguson’s better acquisitions during his time as Leaf GM. He’s making $900,000 (U.S.) on a one-year contract, certainly one of the cannier moves Cliff Fletcher made last summer.
Now it’s up to Burke. Trade Moore before the deadline with his value arguably at its peak? Sign him to a multi-year deal this summer? Let him walk as a 28-year-old free agent?...
Moore’s never had much relative financial security in the game, so maybe he’s thinking this is his chance to nail down a solid contract a great deal closer to the league’s $2 million average salary.
Then again, neither he nor his agent, Larry Kelly, has yet broached the matter with Burke.
Going to Harvard might make you smarter, but it doesn’t make you a soothsayer. As the Leafs try to figure what Moore is, he can only wonder where he’s headed.
