I love Murray.

But our D gets too crowded.

Phaneuf, Gunnar, Liles, Gardiner, Schenn, Aulie, Holzer, Komisarek, Murrary

9 NHL D-men in 6 spots.

Has Doug been that bad? I thought he was a core part of the team...

No, had a rough start to the season but so did everyone. He's back to form now, playing with Burns. We have no issue with him, it's just he only has one year left of his contract and we likely cannot afford his next one. We also have a lot of NHL ready defensive prospects waiting to get a shot (Petrecki for instance, Irwin, etc).

Thanks - also give props to a few Leafs fans who worked on it in the other thread ;]

I don't think Holzer, who has played 2 NHL games can be considered "NHL ready." Far too soon to judge. He has looked great in the AHL, though.

Always liked Murray and his game.

There's just no room in Toronto.

I'd love to have Doug Murray on the Leafs. Adds another tough veteran on the blue line and allows us to package some of our promising defense prospects for help up front.

Obviously, if this was a precursor for another big time move where we would have to ship out a D man i would do it. Gardiner Murray pairing would be awesome!

See...I respect replies from Leafs fans that give useful input like "without another trade, no room on the backend for Murray" or "We would like to keep MacArthur/Armstrong", etc.

This kind of feedback is useless - could you elaborate? So far, your statement is not supported by stats or other hockey fans, so to be honest, your statement is dumb. Thank you for your input - Try again.

(Sorry if that seems a bit harsh...I was enjoying reading some of the good Leafs' opinions/feedback, but this kind of stuff always bugs me.)

hes been fine, we just need to fix other things, and since he likely wont be retained once he hits UFA, id trade him to fix our wholes.

hes also the tops on the return while not hurting the team.

petrecki can easily take his place
