Yeah, but for now I still think if we had had the chance and passed that would have been a big mistake. Not that Murray doesn't have the potential to be great-I just want some offense. In 5 years we can revisit. Heck Murray might turn out to be Cam Barker and Yak another Filatov. Wouldn't that be ironic.

I still think Ryan Murray is the better player. Nail may be a 30-40 goal scorer, but I think Murray has the potential to be a franchise defenseman. Time will tell, but Nail's hot start could turn into a cold streak real quick.

See not drafting a guy who I think will be a star is as bad as drafting the two bums.

Hopefully you now understand. If you disagree fine but at least disagree with the correct concept.
There is a tremendous irony in this post, seeing as though the point of what bizzz and I had to say was that it is a tad premature to judge Yakupov to already definitely be a star based on that early output, seeing as though we've had busts who performed similarly.

"Hopefully you now understand. If you disagree fine but at least disagree with the correct concept."

Chistov scored four points in his first game and these boards went total *******. Brunnstrom got a hat trick in his first game I believe. Hot starts don't mean much

Yup, and was a 5th overall pick the year prior. That removes the idea of "unknown rookie who no one scouted" possibility from the equation.

Anyone remember Dmitri Kvartalnov? Goals in his first five career games and a 14-game point streak to start his career. 10 goals in his first 9 games, 35 points in his first 25 games. He was out of the NHL for good after the next season.

Anyone surprised at how much Murray is being underrated right now (not by us but by other fans).

Guess what, his play was on par with Rielly's WHILE he had a torn labrum.

People substantially smarter than me on such matters have taught me a valuable lesson. And that is that the easily-seen gets overrated, and the unseen is underrated.

Murray's entire game is built on making the right play and putting himself in a position to do the most good. It's nowhere near as spectacular as an end-to-end rush, so it's not inherently seen as more unusual (and therefore more rare, and therefore more valuable).

Growing pains

He's looking more like the guy that played in the WHL, and less like the spectacular rookie he was. Shades of Steve Mason?

His 12 million dollar salary for this year is pretty hilarious considering his play.
