But hey... we are where we are. I'd bring Murray over in a heartbeat and pair him w/ Engo. That would be a sick 3rd pairing. Letang-Nisky, Martin-Orpik, Murray-Engo. Boom. That makes me feel good. Inevitably, if Martin doesn't pick it up, then goodbye. Simple as that.
To get back to the point - Shero did sound like he wanted change. I'm not pulling the trigger on *****ing just yet.
My new 'if Paul Martin is, well, being Paul Martin and San Jose is completely out' hope would be for Shero to go for the Clowe, Boyle, Murray trifecta. Would pretty much kill all the birds with one stone.
Plus, he'd still have the cap space and plenty of assets to go after Iginla . . .
