For sure, I like Tinordi a lot. I have hopes that he will become Subban's partner on the top pairing for years. Nevertheless, he did receive protected minutes last year,and it was in only a handful of games. And while he has been good so far in pre-season games, it's still only pre-season.

Murray may not be what he used to be, but I would give them both numerous games this year before saying that the rookie is better than the still fairly good bottom pairing D in my opinion, especially one as experiences as Murray.

I like Tinordi a lot, yet, because of our depth on D this year, I'd like to see how Tinordi performs in the AHL this year. Yet, our need for another big defencemen (who happens to be good) may force our hand.
