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
This year I think we may see Gardiner get some time with Phaneuf. With his mobility they could be very good together, though I think Gunnarsson will at least start the year with Phaneuf.

If we get Murray Our defence would be:


Murray will need to play with someone like Liles who can move the puck and get back quickly. Murray is very slow and needs a very mobile partner to be successful.
