Afforded a couple of games to assess the Islanders-Sabres trade of last Sunday, I’m sticking to my gut reaction: Despite his two-goal debut on Monday, Matt Moulson’s fantasy value will take a hit in Buffalo. Despite apparently being on his way to a fourth 30-goal campaign in five years, Moulson doesn’t create his own scoring opportunities as he is neither particularly fast or physical. What he does have going for him is one of the quickest pair of hands this side of Phil Kessel.
