As for Murray - I've always said he's a middle of the pack GM and his most recent results don't change much.

As for us needing to rebuild when he took over - the core he was left with up front and in net was good enough that we never should have had to endure losing seasons.

I like how people here are saying I'll gladly eat crow if blah, blah, blah, but when that moment looks like it might be on the horizon they have to redraw the argument to be something else.

It's nice to know that you guys have the great character that you spend so much time
