People here sometimes, lol.

1. Douglas Murray is not an NHL d-man, according to micro-stats
2. Microstats are good, several teams, like the Sharks, use them a lot in their evaluation.
3. Sharks kept using Murray in a decent role despite those "stats".
4. Following this logic, I can say that Murray is a bad d-man.

Something is flawed there
Keep suggesting what you want. Defensive d-men spend more time in their zone. That's why those ridiculous stats claim Scuderi is a bad d-man also.
I watched Iginla blow by Murray like he was standing still. Murray might have been good in the past but recent performance proves that he is no longer.

You want some logic? Here it is:

Murray can't skate.
Murray can't win puck battles he can't get to.
Murray can't get to the puck so he can't get it out of his zone.
Habs get outshot/outplayed dramatically while Murray's on the ice.
Habs lose with Murray.
