I feel that Condra would help this team just as much as Murray can. I actually feel comfortable with Braun as our #6, and that Condra helps bolster our bottom lines. But I agree with you that I doubt Murray will get traded at all simply as an insurance to any injuries on D.

However at the deadline if our 3rd/4th lines clearly need help, and Murray is playing like he did last year, I think it'd be prudent for Wilson to shop him around. Unlike you, however, I think that there are contending teams willing to send us a depth forward for Murray (ie. Condra, Hagelin, etc.)

If Murray returns to form, and I hope he will, he most definitely WON'T be traded. Right now, I would like the Sharks to re-sign Dominic Moore (1- year, $1.5 million-ish) and keep Murray and see how things go from there.
