I like special qualities out of my defenseman. For me, I'd rather the guy who can change the game with a big hit on the back end, a big goal on the PP, or the end to end rush that makes something out of nothing. Murray will manage the game, be a safe player to have out there in all situations but I don't think he will excel anywhere and I don't think he's the guy who can change a game.
