It's very clear at this point. We can all argue semantics til we're blue in the face, but 14 to 1? Come on, now. If those were Bouillon's numbers or DD's numbers or Gionta's numbers, we'd be crucifying them.
The nice thing about the team being 14 to 1 with Murray on the ice is that it will make Tinordi look like a huge upgrade when he joins the team... and there will be less pressure on him. The media will be able to say, 'At least he is better than Murray.'
