Sprinkle in Murray and Demers where you can.
Irwin does compliment Boyle's game but he's got to get a lot better while Demers is out to maintain that spot. He is a rookie and is making his share of rookie mistakes. That's fine because that's what he is right now and he will get better the more he plays but in this shortened season, you need your best players on the ice when available and Demers is better and was white hot overseas this season. It'd be nice to see if he can carry it over to the NHL like a few of their offensively-inclined forwards have done.
However, in the off-season, it will be easy to let Murray go and slide Irwin in the lineup from day one and I would like them to trade Boyle this off-season as well.
That's a nice set of defensemen.
