If they move up Pavelski to the second line and make a move for a 3rd/4th line center, they should be fine. If I were Gorton, I'd dangle Moore and see what they are willing to offer us for him.

Uhh, Pavelski is their 1st line RW.

Could have been worse. Lance Bouma, for example, is out three month with the same injury because it's probably a worse break.

I doubt they pull off any trades to compesate for this. They'll simply slot up in the line-up as they need to and re-call someone for their fourth line.

Dailyfaceoff has Hertl in the 2nd line center role between Marleau and Ward in Couture's spot. Tierney and Hertl will probably rotate until a solution is found while Couture is out.
