I think it's a good idea, but I haven't ever been that high on Yak.
I was watching NHL on TSN last night and what I got from Tambellini is that they were taking Murray. He said he wasn't just looking at skill but leadership as well (Murray has been a captain on just about every team he's ever played on) and he also said that team need plays a factor into their decision.
According to Elliotte Friedman of CBC, the Sabres are trying to acquire the 25-year old winger. Now, as Dave Davis pointed out, “attempting to acquire” and “about to acquire” are two completely different things. Sabres fans need to remember that, and not get too carried away this time around.
If that's true that Edmonton is picking Murray, there's a great chance that Yakupov (Montreal) and Galchenyuk (Toronto) could be in our division next season. Wonderful. Maybe the Islanders should be the target.
