Like I said before, if the Sharks are in playoff contention by the TDL, I don't see DW trading Murray. You don't trade depth defenseman for picks if you are contending, and the only teams that will want Murray at the deadline are contending teams (hence they'll probably only offer picks).

I agree. But if he returns to form, he's too valuable to the Sharks if they are contending, so I don't see him getting traded then either.
