I'm not sure. I do some some positives though. A big defenceman, sort of replaces Schenn, adds some size and stability and allows us to not rush any young guy (i.e. if we have an injury to our top 6/7 then guys like Blacker are next in line). Murray has 1 more year at $2.5M left so you're not married to the guy. Could even try him with Phaneuf? (remember, Phaneuf played some of his best hockey as a Leaf with a similar guy in Keith Aulie).

Murray-Phaneuf
Gardiner-Gunnarsson
Liles-Franson/Holzer/Kimisarek

Would make Gunnar have to flip sides though.


Just thinking out loud a little. I'd rather send them Lombardi
DEFINITELY.

I think we're probably looking a bit beyond that though to Mac + Gunnar for Murray + Clowe. That had some traction over the last couple months. Murray will replace what we lose in Komi, Schenn and Gunnar - he's a tank capable of top-4 minutes.
