As for Murray, he has the goods to make the team and stick next season but we need to see more of him.. He was my first pick for our draft and by all accounts that I have read is NHL ready.
If Murray doesn't make this team, it will be because Moore and/or Savard have simply out-performed him at camp. In probably over 200 times watching him play, I can honestly say that he is very much capable of stepping right into the NHL next year.
That being said, I certainly don't think sending him back to the WHL (especially in what should be a down year for us anyways!) is the wrong idea. I'd love to see his offensive game continue to develop, and dominating for a full season would be great for his confidence.
