Or at least he'll have to force his way onto the roster instead of having a spot given to him.

Best case scenario, by Dec-Jan Tinordi and Emelin are getting top 6 minutes and Murray becomes a tradeable asset and we get a pick back for him(2nd or 3rd).

Subban
Markov
Gorges
Emelin(inj)
Diaz
Murray
Bouillon
Drewiske

Tinordi

From speaking to NHL folks, the issue with Murray is he's gotten too big. It's not necessarily fat, but he is too bulky at 6'3" 250lbs to be a big minute(20-22/night) guy the last few years. I would love it if he showed up at camp at 230-235lbs, which at 6'3" is still a tank.
