If Murphy is sent down that means there are only 2 extra scratches if we're in compliance to the proposed lines.

Boychuk-Staal-Semin
Skinner-Staal-Dalpe
Tlusty-Jokinen-Larose
Bowman-Brent-Dwyer
Westgarth

Gleason-Corvo
Pitkanen-Faulk
Harrison-Sangs
Mcbain

Ward
Ellis

I was surprised when Wallace was sent down. If we really are running with 23 players for the first game, then we have a strong case for Gomez. If else, it'll be Murphy as the 23rd skater.

Murphy will go down for sure...physically he is just not ready yet.


Gomez might be an ok addition but where do you put him...maybe the 4th line with:
Bowman-Gomez-Brent/Dwyer

Sounds stupid but why not consider a veteran depth signing in:

Langkow...11 goals 30 pts playing with PHX

After some of the moves JR has already done you gotta trust that the Canes are in good hands:

Semin...30+ goal player
Staal...30 goal player
Westgarth...veteran enforcer...cup champ
Ellis...veteran back up
Nodl...waivers...I actually like Nodl he just didn't fit like Boychuk, Dalpe, Bowman
Stewart...traded...good trade
Boucher...traded...coming off injuries

And with Ruutu on LTIR Rutherford still has $18M in cap space to work with...honestly the Canes are in an amazing spot for a late trade deadline playoff run!!!
