Call me crazy on this one, but I honestly think that if we want to upgrade our roster to make a push this year the best move may be shipping out Murphy. Kid has all the potential one can ask for as an offensive dman, but he's still very much a project. If this team is going into a win-now mode he is by far our most valuable trade asset. Murphy alone should be able to get us a nice #3 centerman not just for now but for the long term IMO.

Of course, if we're still looking another season or two out, hold on to him by all means. Play him in the AHL to start next season unless he proves in camp that he deserves the #5/6 spot and use as callup as necessary. Basically the McBain approach.
