A few of us talked about it in the WC topic, but only a few posts. I guess that's what happens when the WCs are during the SC Playoffs.

I wouldn't mind that either, as long as Murray is the 7th. Demers and Braun deserve more playing time. I just know if Murray is on the team, TMac will try to roll Murray for 82, Braun for ~50 and Demers for ~30.

Murray is exceptionally fit and a workhorse, so I wouldn't be surprised if he improved his game since last season. It would just be a smarter move for the long-run to keep Demers and Braun, unless a great Top-6 is coming back.
