Murray is reluctant to give up pieces that will be good in the future, but it all depends on the individuals that come available and whether it makes sense or not.
I believe Lombardi was willing to move Schenn, he just wasn't getting what he wanted as a return until Richards. LA needed more depth at center, Richards filled that bill perfectly.
In the case of Ottawa, there is no doubt the team could use a second line center. But with Regin's return and kids like Da Costa and Zibanejad what is the point in giving up much to get one, when it is a temporary move?
Murray will probably stand pat this year, unless a GM makes an offer that is just impossible to turn down.
