Downey vs. Murray

Downey's skating has improved tremendously. Who do you guys think is the better player?

Downey: decent speed [not FAST imo], can hit, barely fights at all anymore

Murray: fast, can hit harder IMO, our most aggressive PKer IMO, and fought more than Downey last year


Murray all the way

I think Murray has more upside but he is not playing as well as last season IMO.

Yeah. I notice that too... I was like ***? where you lookin' at ?

Anyway Murray is a better overall players... He's a more hard-hitter then Downey, faster, better "scoring-touch".

here is how i see it . there both very useful players who play the same role on the ice.

downey is a dressing room guy tho . he keep everyone loose .

will downey still be in a habs uniform in 4 years? i doubt it he be 36 yrs old .

Murray i think everyone forgets just turned 24 year old in Sept
Downey just turned 32 .



Murray =future

I like both guys a lot but went with Murray.

Downey is a great momentum guy but Murray has moe potential and is aleady a good part of this team. I'd like to see both of them together... but, like having Latendresse there too.

Murray has more upside against most teams, but Downey is an ideal 13th foward to be able to plug into the line-up when some solid grit is needed.

Both are transients who play a limited role and they will be replaced by more talented but still physical players in no more than a year or two.

Downey had a great game , better than Murray's play so far. But down the line Murray is better.
