More like he was rushed and badly mismanaged.

I love his play and liked the trade at the time, but any way you slice it, he was looking like a bust for a 3rd over all pick, and his stock was extremely low given his performance, and his seemingly poor attitude. It was a shrewd move/gamble by Murray.

Looking at him today, Phoenix does not make that trade, or certainly some other team offers a much better package as he's looking like he may close in on his potential.

At the time however, we traded one of the best young players not in the NHL, and a second round pick, for a struggling young player who we hoped would get back on track with a change of scenery.

All in all, not at all a good example of trading our unproven prospects for other teams' star players, but indeed a good example of possible future trades that I would be in favour of, provided they were backed by the Murray's and not just HF posters
