our boost has less to do with murray than pitts decline though, imo.
The three factors that have boosted the Sharks' numbers so much since the trade: Burns in, Pavelski to 3C, and the dumping of Murray. I'm not going to guess which is most responsible, but losing Murray and playing Demers is a big part of it.

It's Crosby, Malkin, Neal, and Letang being injured that's screwed Pittsburgh much more than Murray in.
