I still dont see how murray is overrated. no one is predicting 40 goal, 80 point seasons for him. in fact being generous i gave him 20 goals and 40 points as a potential top end. more likely 15 goals and 35 points is reasonable.

Everyone knows he is a third line player, but he as a shot to be a VERY GOOD third line player.

There's a reason why Lapointe was sought after {though overpaid} and guys like Marchant, Holik,McCarty, Maltby are valuable to their teams. Because they do a bunch of little things and do them well. They arent spectacular players but they change a game and make a team that much better.

Murray has the potential and the character to be that type of player. He's not a top 6 forward in fact if he becomes a smaller mark bell i'll be pretty happy.

I don't only get excited about game breaking forwards i appreciate third line players and stay at home defenseman {lampman}.

Often times have players like that fills most of the holes you come up with as a team.
