You could make that Rosie Ruzicka for Murray straight up and the Bruins would still jump at that. He can still play, but his contract sucks.
He's really not a Knuble clone in that Murray doesn't use his size effectively, doesn't hit, and doesn't battle in the corners and on the boards nearly as well. All Murray can do is shoot, shoot, shoot. And thats fine, with even an average center with playmaking ability, like a Stumpel, he could score 30-40 goals.
If you weren't happy, I'd question your knowledge.
Having said that, way too much for Murray. Meyer just got signed to an extension, he won't be traded, unless it's for a better defenseman. Ruzicka played a couple nights ago and looked good, he could be good trade bait but I hate the idea of giving up a 20 year old prospect and 2 picks for a 33 year old who needs a playmaking centre. I honestly don't think the Flyers have much interest in Murray. They need creativity, which is why a lot of Flyer fans are asking for Samsonov.
I agree that the Flyers definitily wont show much interest in Murray. He has way too hefty a salary to take on plus he doesnt play a "philly" like game. Wed rather take on a more skilled playmaker like samsonov because we could use more speed. But since the B's are still in the hunt for a playoff spot, I doubt either of the two will be going anywhere. With that said, I think a good possibility and more likly is Tkachuk or Recchi. We would love having recchi back because he is still loved in Philly and shows he can still be the scorer he was 2 years ago. Also, Tkachuk would be a very welcomed addition because he plays a very "Clarke" style of play. He can still score, and could prove very very important in the late season and playoffs. Both guys would add that veteran aspect wed really need to get the push for the playoffs. Personally, I would love to have Jokinen. He is just amazing, hes big, plays physically, and can score like any other good player. However, I doubt Florida will be moving him anytime before the end of the season. So, my choices in order would be:1.Jokinen..2.Tkachuk..3.Recchi...4Samsonov...5G len Murray
