Losing Murray really hurts because that would have been a perfect top pair with Hamilton. Maybe Ouellet-Hamilton works as the top pair.
UMMMM, Did you watch Rielly play at all in the Super Series? If you had you may have noticed he is actually very responsible on the ice as to when he goes or doesn't. He is also rarely out of position defensively, so I think you might be a bit off in your analysis.
