I hope he didnt actually plan on a defense of Visnovsky, Lydman, Sutton, Mara, Mikkelson, Sbisa and Lilja.

Because that defense lands us a lottery pick.
It doesn't sound as bad if you expect top 4 caliber play from the likes of Sbisa, Sutton, and Mara. In actual practice, it's another matter. I'd agree with you, but Murray -has- spoken of his expectations regarding certain players. Ones that were not entirely realistic with what the players had shown. During that off-season, for example, he said he expected Sbisa to slot into the top 4 for the upcoming season.

You could be right about this, i just don't see that devious side to Murray.
