We won't move him at the trade deadline. I said off-season.

He'll play out the duration of this season; play-offs included, and if he doesn't want to re-sign with Ottawa then we'll trade him during the off-season to recoup some of the assets we lost in the initial deal.

Trading away a 22 year old 20-30 goal-scorer, a promising offensive prospect and a 1st round draft pick for a 2-year 'rental' would be a disaster from a managerial perspective.

The media would eat Murray alive.
