The Devils traded 7 games of Wayne Simmonds for what is now likely their best LD.  He’s injury prone. But there’s legitimately zero risk, and the reward is a “oh holy sh!t yeah” type of r

Neither will fit on Mueller’s enormous head. 

Not to mention, if we catch lightning in a bottle and he actually is healthy next season and he plays how he’s capable (he’s been a legitimate top-4 defenseman on a playoff hockey team for a few years

Am I crazy or is this.. crazy good value?

Pretty much nothing for this guy, seems like a good bottom 6 player.

 

My buddy who works for the Blue Jackets (actually got let go this week because of Covid and they can't sell anything) said that Murray can be a borderline top pair defenseman if he's healthy, but that he rarely is.  He said he's great when he is, but that it's common for him to play 10 games, get hurt, come back, play 10 more, get hurt again, and so forth. Essentially not to get our hopes up lol.  But for a 5th, I think it's definitely good value.  Really low risk on our part, so why not take a shot.  I'm all for it.

Reading through the trade thread on HF,  and early on before the details came out people were speculating it was for Palms, or Zacha, or a couple 2nds...LMAO

Well done, Fitz. 

Haha, that 1st page is a good read.

Great job by Fitz.  Even if he’s hurt a lot, having a guy who can actually defend on the roster should help the younger guys development as well.

Those threads are always funny later on. I read the Kovalchuk trade thread yesterday and it was funny watching people think Elias was included or the relief they experienced when we didn’t lose Matthias Tedenby lol.

If he can stay healthy, he is certainly a defensive upgrade over anything Mirco or Carrick can offer.

The answer we were looking for was ‘what does Ryan Murray have in common with a traffic cone?’

In today's Athletic,  Torts spoke glowingly of Murr. He could use in any situation, good at getting the puck out. He also had nice things to say about J. Anderson, Nutivaara, and even Wenny. (Wennberg) Whom he had hot/cold relationship over the years.
