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).
Would make Gunnar have to flip sides though.
Just thinking out loud a little. I'd rather send them Lombardi
I like Murray and think Mac should be moved but Murray is a left handed shot and 32
I'd also worry about having he and Komisarek, Burke probably loves the idea but having two dmen that can't hardly skate or make a pass out of the zone will cost the Leafs
