When we were having that debate about keeping Vlasic or Murray, I asked what would happen if Murray lost a step since that could be the difference b/t him being an effective d-man versus a Cheechoo where he's too slow for the NHL. The beginning of the end might be here for Murray.

With that said, can you imagine how SOFT this team will be w/o Murray and Clowe? They might be slow and had down years, but they're badasses. If you thought this team didn't have enough grit, wait till Murray and Clowe are gone.
Grit is the single most overrated aspect of winning a hockey game. Marleau was hitting and not scoring. Skill>grit, and it isn't particularly close.

How many big hits did you see any Blues player throw? I can remember one by Oshie in game 2. That's all.
