Why would you want a 60-point, hard hitting, space creating, hard working player in Ryane Clowe? That kind of player most of us wanted Latendresse to be?

Would I trade Price for him straight up? Nope.

But now you're going to throw in Douglas Murray, who makes just $2.5M for the nex two years? One of the premier shutdown defenseman in the NHL? Also, he's one of the hardest hitting players in the entire NHL. 233 hits this year which ranks him 10th in the entire NHL.

Halak + Clowe + Murray
VS
Halak + Price

It's pretty easy, at least to me, which side is better for an NHL team trying to compete and move forward.
