I think I'd rather buy him out or send him to the minors than give up a first.

Bergeron is absolutely healthy and ready to go, Fernandez too. Alberts could definitely be a guy they'd move. Right now they have Ferrence and Alberts on the bottom pair, with Hnidy as the 7th. Matt Lashoff is probably ready to make the move to the NHL, which would make one of Ferrence or Alberts expendable. Personally, I'd rather move Ferrence because he makes more and I'm not a fan of his game.

I don't see Fernandez being moved as 1) there's no market for him and 2) I don't think Rask is ready to be the starter in the NHL, and I'd rather have him playing every night in Providence than sitting in Boston.

Murray and Ference for Calder?

Chia has been trying to trade him for a long time. There have been no takers. And why would his rep take a hit if he's sent to the minors? Isn't that what many teams do to a guy that can no longer play like a top 12 forward? Can't sign good contracts? He didn't sign Murray - O'Connell did. Get your facts straight, wannabe GM.
And O'Connell signed Fernandez? Your 'perfect' back-up who happens to make 3 times your starter?

Wannbe GM... I was stating my opinion.

Isn't that what many teams do to a guy that can no longer play like a top 12 forward?

What were the last 5 players sent to the minors who made more than 4.5 million? Or, even easier for you, 3 million. Can you name them? I wonder how far back you actually have to go? 2 years? 3?

Smart***.

I'd love to deal Murray, but if the cost is a 2nd or 3rd round pick or a prospect like Hunwick or Marchand, then I'd rather keep him and trade any combo of Schaefer/Axelsson/Alberts/Ferrence. Murray's deal is up at the end of the year. The loss of a good young prospect for 10 years isn't worth it.
That's fair enough, if you can do that and Murray has a decent first half you might be able to rangle something out of him in a trade.

We'll take Axelsson off your hands.

Would you really want to waste a waiver pick on Murray? what if a player like Bryzgalov became available?

How many players are you allowed to pick up off waivers?

Murray has a limited or no-trade clause (forget which) in his contract. This is probably at the very least a contributing factor in him being on waivers.

That and right now the club needs cap space more than a good return.

Thank God there are still some posters around to help him eat the crow pie that goes with opposing popular opinion.

I don't see how he won't clear waivers.
