Glen MURRAY. Sidney CROSBY would thrive with a sniper like MURRAY on his wing. With PALLFY retired, the pens have the $$$ to afford MURRAY and he not only would help tap CROSBY's enomous playmaking ability but he would be a great mentor considering they are from the same relative area in Nova Scotia (CROSBY-Cole Harbour/MURRAY-Bridgewater).
I can see MURRAY getting back to 40 goal range on CROSBY's wing, maybe even 50 if they develop the chemistry that I think they can.
The Bruins have nobody that is a pure set up guy since THORNTON was traded so MURRAY is not condusive the Bruins system right now. Ryan MALONE is reportedly available...MURRAY and SLEGR for MALONE and a second rounder?
Just toss this out there for discussion, what about gonchar for someone like marty lapointe. Seems like he'd be a nice tough guy to skate with sid, but who can play a little too, unlike Soruvy who is not tough and cannot play well. Yes he is overpaid but so is Gonchar and we're not going to be able to move gonchar's salary without taking another bad contract back or giving up a prospect.

I'm still not sure about the idea of giving up one of our defensemen for a forward,I'd rather get back another d-man in return since we still need a little help back there. Lapointe was awesome when he was in Detroit,especially when they played Colorado. Seems like he isn't too happy in Chicago and definitely still has that edge to his game,but I'm not really too sure how his production is this season. Like I said,I'd rather see a decent d-man coming back in any kind of deal,but I guess any good player would be nice too.
