I'm pretty convinced he'll end up being an Islander. If that happens I really wouldn't be surprised to see him paired with Hamonic to start the year on the 2nd pairing. Streit and mystery UFA at the top.
Hamonic is the Isles best defender at this point, so I think playing with him could make the transition a lot easier for Murray. If Murray shows he belongs next year, I think they will quickly become NYI's top-pairing and stay there for a long, long time.
Unless EDM trades down to spot 2 or 3, or some other team jumps ahead of the Islanders, I just don't see Murray being picked before the 4 spot. The Isles passing on him there, IMO, is just as unlikely.
