Should that be the case, the Tips would absolutely be able to ask the moon for Ryan Murray. There would be no reason not to - he won't be back with them either way next year, yet they also won't have anything to lose by hanging onto him, as they know they will have him for the remainder of the year.

It's no secret that they're rebuilding, and for them to get major assets for Ryan Murray would certainly be worth it. It's definitely not out of the realm of possibility, but there are a lot of factors in play.
Pretty much what I was going with as well. NOt sure what teams would be factors for him(as I only watch maybe 3 CHL games a year) but could you imagine a D-line of Jones, Pouliot, & Murray in Portland? It'd be like to Avs in 2001 where U got 3 defenseman playing 30 minutes a night and the other 3 playing like 7.
