Is Murray better than Bouillon? Maybe, maybe not...

I love posts like this.

Murray has 80 hits and 83 blocked shots so far this season.

Those 80 hits would place him number one in Montreal since Emelin is out. Those 83 blocked shots would place him number two in Montreal after Gorges.

Murray is exactly what Montreal needs.

Also, he would not have allowed Rosehill to do what he did to Gallagher or Pacioretty without having to answer for it.

We are too used to seeing soft defense in Montreal to fully appreciate what a physical DMan can do for a team. Emelin was great at hitting but didnt block a lot of shots nor was a good fighter.

Weber and St-Denis have spoiled a lot of fans.
