Pens send Dominic Moore to Minnesota

The Penguins have sent Dominic Moore to the Minnesota Wild in exchange for a third round draft pick.

This essentially means that the Pens got Georges Laraque in exchange for Moore and Carcillo.

I liked Dominic Moore, but something had to give with the Pens acquiring two forwards (Roberts and Laraque) while not moving anybody out. I think the writing was on the wall for Dominic. He was a PK specialist, but with the emergence of Max Talbot, he was largely made redundant. The Pens are in good shape on the PK with the play of Army, Staal, Talbot and Malone.

Good luck to Dominic in Minnesota. I think he'll fit in quite well there.
