Thanks for the reminder 210 about why Murray was on a two-way.
For Desjardins, it's the exact opposite (a strength of his). He has good hockey sense and quickness to react and even anticipate where the puck will go along the boards.
Agree the others have the issue with Mitchell the most egregious since he's a vet.
