It's a chance to snag a useful player in free agent and gain a future asset or two by trading Murray. That's not something they can pass up based on minor issues from seven years ago.
Last post on the issue. It wasn't minor. He may have changed, but very doubtful. IMO, the original departure was not entirely his play and the non-hockey issue wasn't minor in DW's eyes. IMO, TM would have to certify a sea change in Stuart to get DW's attention.
