It's possible Murray could do both. Konopka & Carkner have been healthy scratches & as the end of the season looms ever closer & in the playoffs their enforcer skills become somewhat irrelevant. While they could use Konopka's faceoff abilities they do have other guys who are pretty good at faceoffs as well. The same could be said of Winchester since it seems the younger & bigger O'Brien could easily replace him. I could see Murray trading one or two of these guys for some late picks. He could also add a Ruutu or Hensky if the price comes down or they accept quantity for quality. But as we approch the deadline it seems more & more like nothing will get done.

Personally, I think a good addition would be Kabina as a rental who has the size, experience & good two way play to fit in nicely on the 3rd pairing. He would replace both Carkner & Lee who have been sharing that spot & would add more offence from that position than both Lee & carkner put together.He is big enough & tough enough not to be pushed around & skilled enough to upgrade that position. If he could also add Hemsky or Ruutu without it costing much that would really upgrade the team going into the playoffs & create three or four scoring line possibilities. Just a thought.

Kuba - Karlsson
Phillips - Gonchar
Cowen - Kabina
extras - Boroweicki - Lee
