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

I would do this deal as well. Players would have their heads on a swivel and thinking twice about what they do if they have to worry about both Phaneuf and Murray on the ice looking for the big hit on a unsuspecting player.

The acquisition of Murray would round out a solid and versatile D-corp for the Leafs.
