Certainly a possiblity at some point.
I'm not going that far. When one says "Power Forward", I envision a top 2 line player. When one mentions "Grinder" I envison a 3rd line plugger. So far, I have not seen any indication that Garth has what it takes to be a 2nd line power forward. Let's hope I'm wrong. And really, is it horrible if he becomes a forward in the Mcarty role? A 3rd line mainstay who also takes care of his teamates and is a lockerroom leader is not a bad thing for Murray to be.
Believe me I WISH that Murray would develop into a true 2nd line power forward. However, so far, it seems that Garth is destined to be a good, 3rd line character player. And that is not so bad for a 3rd round pick in a weak draft.
