Murray is boring. The Kings are boring. Murray is rigid. The Kings are rigid.

Murray's system is too inflexible and doesn't seem to allow for creativity and flow. How many passes do the Kings miss and how often do they end up bunched up in either zone and can't create separation from their defenders? They make a lot of passes to areas instead of tape-to-tape.

The youth and lack of skill can no longer be a crutch for Murray. The Kings need to show vast improvement by the end of October if they want any chance of a division championship.

6 goals in 3 games. Right in line with past Murray seasons.
