Not from College, but Murray also signed David Dziurzynski April 4th 2010 out of the BCHL

Murray also signed in the past few years : Craig Schira, Wacey Hamilton, Pat Cannone

Da Costa

So many free wallets, another reason why we can afford to burn draft picks in trades. They won't all end up into NHL players but most are at least prospects that you pick in later rounds. They end up playing a few years on the AHL squad at worst.

IMO, those prospects are/were worth :

Schira = 6th rounder
Hamilton = 6th rounder
Canonne = 4th rounder
Dziurzynski = 4th rounder
Winchester = 3rd rounder
Butler = 2nd rounder (30-40)
Da Costa = 1st rounder (20-30)

Again, it puts things in perspective if you are going to panic about a few picks traded. Murray during his time in Ottawa has cumulated more quality assets than it was realistic to hope 4 years ago.

I think they are going to pick up a defenseman or a goalie this year (could be from Europe too). Or both. They talked about having a goaltending pipeline.
