Trade Murray now as his value may never be higher and his return could be HUGE !!!

I don't think so, I think he's legitimately hurt. Another reality people have to face regarding Muzz.

I must be getting old and need to get some glasses, but I haven't seen Glen Murrays play this year as being described as that of a "one trick pony".

He has been hustling, playing more physically than I have seen him play in a Bruin sweater, and is still generating goals (even without his favorite set up guy).

His price tag at the time of his contract renewal may have been a bit steep for my liking, but with the salsry cap continuing to increase, he's beginning to look like more of a deal than ever.

I've been an advocate for a youth movement in Boston and if the right deal presented itself, wouldn't mind seeing Muzz getting traded, but I couldn't keep reading the posts about him not bringing anything else to the table but scoring without responding.

Thats a sad statement. He likely wont get 35 registered hits all year.

and If Drury sign elsewhere ?
Ah... I must inform you that this kind of thinking is too far ahead of step one, and I believe it's against forum rules.

Neither will most of the Bruins.

Is that more indicative of Murrays play or Lewis's system?

If Murray CAN land a HUGE return, then I'm sure Chiarelli will make the deal.

At this point, Murray is a bargain for 4.1 million (2 more years). I'm pretty sure he'll only consider moving him if a team is willing to overpay or give him exactly what he wants. Otherwise, what's the point? Dump Murray and spend on another UFA? If you haven't noticed, UFA prices have been increasing yearly. Dumping Murray at 4.1 million and we'll end up with Modin at 4.1 million...and that's not good value.

4.1 isn't that bad of a contract and I agree with COC that you're going to spend that on someone who isn't as good this summer and worse - have to give them 3-5 yrs. And there's no guarantee that said player will perform to the level they expect (see Zhamnov, the Habs with Sammy, Bert down south, Anson Carter etc) .

Most importantly why I'd keep Murray unless someone was willing to seriously overpay is the length of his contract. Two more years is perfect for the B's current line-up. A few years down the road and they are probably thinking that they'll have to pony up raises for at least a few of Boyes, Kessel, Alberts, Chistov (i can dream), Bochenski (still dreaming), Toivonen, and you'll have Muzz's contract coming off the books just in time.

Depending on what happens with Sturm ( i figure 7 out of ten points on this road trip and you have to hold onto him - 6 out of 10 and you still might have to think about it) I probably wouldn't touch the free agent market for much this year. Maybe a veteran depth d-man, a cheap veteran back-up, a hitting 3rd liner if you need to and keep some flexibility under the cap next year.

Picking up Drury or someone (say 4.5 to 6 mil at 4 years) and you'll have 22 - 23 million tied up in four players just when you have to redo some contracts to keep the kids.

We should not trade Murray.............. If we were going to be a contender.

But we are not going to be a contender this year!

Next year, maybe, but for his money, we can get a younger and similar type of player, who will be as fast and maybe even more productive and less likely to get injured.

That's if they count Muzz rubbing shoulders with the puck carrier a full 2 seconds after he's passed it to the neutral zone to a breaking winger.

Keep Murray. Someone with the same skill is going to demand 5 million plus next year with the salary cap going up and the relative lack of good UFA's to go around. Also, almost half of Murray's ice time is on the PP, so he's not exactly killing us defensively, and he has been hustling. He may not hit, but he is a huge ASSET to this team
