What is it with the hate on Murray.

One of the main reasons he is struggling because of who he is paired with. Boullion should be the one who sits.

Gives away pucks, can't hold puck at the line, often caught out of position, the worst is sometimes he looks like he is just out there skating around and when his guy is wide open and you see where Boullion is, its quite ridiculous.

Murray does his job well. I said before the season started he needed to be paired with a mobile dman but who can actually play defense.

Murray is doing what he was brought in for. He has been planted in front of the net, shoving guys out and throwing guys around plus blocking shots. You guys act like your wanting more from him. Murray knows his role and he doesn't often try to get out of his boundaries. Bouillion on the other hand looks like he is trying to be PK Subban when in fact he is a small dman with no hands.

Sit Boullion and pair Murray with lets say a Diaz. His game will be more rounded as he has a guy who can "actually" move the puck out of the zone and knows he has someone that he can rely on from his faults, to give him speed that he doesn't have.

Markov Subban
Emelin Gorges
Murray Diaz


This is what the backend should be and needs to be. Boullion could use the rest.
