Veteran players aren't signed to ride the pine in the NHL unless they significantly struggle. It's just not done that way.
Agree re Murray as he was just brought over, but do we think Bouillon would object to sitting say three out of four games through October? In my mind a declining vet like Cube would not mind being in the press box if that's what coach thinks is best for the team, it certainly doesn't hurt his development or confidence or whatever. Plus he'd have plenty of time to opine for RDS
