This is not to say that separating a guy from the puck using a hit is bad. But you don't want it to be the only thing you do.
No, it really isn't. In fact, if that's all he does, it's worth the money. Murray brings size, meanness and experience for $1.5M on a 1-year deal. What's the problem?? Jeez Louise, what does a GM have to do to get a little credit from this team's fan-base?

All anyone's been writing on these boards for the last 2 months is, "we have to get bigger!" Fine - we just did!! Be happy

All we're missing now is a face-off specialist. If MB lands one, we're set to start the season.
