Minor Swap: Greg Moore to Blue Jackets (Syracuse) for D Dylan Reese, Radja

Michael Fornabaio described this aptly in his initial post, I think: "For defensive depth." Center Greg Moore goes to Columbus (where he is assigned to AHL Syracuse) while defenseman Dylan Reese heads this way. I suppose you can read this re-allocation of forward to D as a sign that maybe, just perchance, a defenseman is headed out the Islanders' organizational door. We'll see; Bridgeport already had a lot of D (and unless I'm mistaken, Dustin Kohn hasn't played there during the Olympic break).

Reese is already 25, listed at 6'1", 201 lbs., and collects his share of assists in the AHL. He was also a {gulp} Rangers draft pick, 7th round (209 overall) back in 2003. Moore was Bridgeport's fifth-leading scorer this year by points, but is also a minus-15. Meanwhile, as Fornabaio noted of Reese: "On a very-minus Crunch team, he was plus-12."

UPDATE: Fornabaio reports that center Mike Radja is the other piece coming from Syracuse in the deal.
