So what?

The NHL is about production and results, you don't get points for artistic expression.

Guys like Gill, Chara, Carkner, Regehr, Scuderi etc have been effective NHL players for years without great mobility.

Nurray will be used in a role and in certain situations, much like Glachenyuk and Gallagher last year(different ones, same concept). He should do really well in that role, as long as you don't ask him to shut down a top line. He will also add a whole lot of mean streak on defense with Emelin out.
