You must realize though that we received him in return for Marcel Hossa. Definitely didn't sell the farm to get him here, so even though he isn't lighting it up or anything, he doesn't really have to, as the shoes he had to fill were pretty small. :D

Yeah, I'm sure we all expect a little more out of him, and it would be great to see. But, he's only being paid .575 million, and that's about as cheap as they come nowadays anyways.

Well I wish we would have kept Hossa....

Even the fight he had was ridiculous, he landed 2 points where Allen has hit him 27 times...

More like Allen hit Murrays helmet 27 times, neither guy landed a punch to the face, but atleast he had the nads to drop the gloves un like every other habs player besides Downey and Souray. And its good for him to fight we dont need him on the ice for those 5 min anyway. I just wish Begin would stop being such a little girl and fight, he starts everything and never drops the gloves. Like vs Edmonton when he was on the ice when Greene kneed Johnson and he didnt do anything and Souray got 17 PM;s on that one play.

Agreed, he's a player I wish we would have kept. He's consistant and solid for most of the season.

And he has been improving game by game. I would have rather had Hossa on the team over Murray - but what's done is done.

Really? I'll admit i havent watched every rangers' game this year but from what ive seen he's been pretty average at best. He's on pace to be -19 this year too...not exactly stellar 'defensive specialist' stats :D

Anyway, Hossa is going off topic - we have murray, im still very happy with the deal myself - and while he isnt doing great this year (I still think he's injured) I think he's going to be manning our 4th line for many years to come :D

I am still wondering why Carbo is still playing Murray. He as be disappointing all year. His defensive play is horrible thus far. I can't imagine that we do not have someone in Hamilton who is better than this guy. He needs to be sitting in the press box.

Murray is improving, compared to the first games of the season and putting him with Begin in Streit is generating some chances. Once he gets going like last season we will be set

I havn't seen any improvment in Murray what so ever. He's not hitting like he was and his defensive play like I said earlier is horrible. and as far as Begin he is nowhere near the player he was last year. I still think he's playing ok but just ok. He seemed to have lost something out there. But he is nowhere the player he was for Montreal last season.

I think that this team has some much more important issues of non-performance than Murray if you ask me... Murray is a 13th or 14th forward on our team. There are other paid millions of dollars that are doing just as bad as he is and THAT's allarming...

true but those player (Samsonov for one) have far more upside. i believe that we just need to mix up the lines to help them out. As far as Murray goes I just don't see him as a NHL player anymore at least not right now.

He has been horrible in comparison to last year though, and whether its at the top of the depth chart or the bottom it needs ot be fixed, a guy like Ferland would be doing twice the job Murray is doing right now, he is creating NOTHING, not even an ounce of energy, he is uselessly flying around the ice, missing his checks, and falling all over the place.

I agree 100%. there is a lot of guys in Hamilton that would do much better than Murray in our line up.. heck even Downey has been much better.

i agree also.i don't know whats going on with him but he's a shell of what he was last year

I agree. Like I said awhile ago...NOT IMPRESSED. I was watching him last night and thinking WHY is he on this team? Last year seems he brought something...every game he played. This year...I'm still waiting (ok maybe he had that 1 good game).

I say play Downey...and call someone up to replace Murray (doesn't deserve to be on this team ...not the way he has been playing this season).

Knowing Garth persoanlly, I know he's more frustrated than you guys. He's just can't seem to get it rolling, and trust me, it's not due to lack of effort.......

GO GARTH!

Yes you are right but it's easier to fix Murray situation than it is to deal with the millions that are not preforming. It is easier to replace a 4th liner than a top six forward.

I agree. He's playing what... 7 minutes per game? He's not the problem.

he plays hard every night...every game i see, he's back helping the defencemen out in the defensive zone almost more than he's in the offensive zone. that guy can speed up and down the ice like a champ! no lack of effort from that guy and his afro for sure!

i'm glad we got rid of hossa for him. hossa's only got 3 points a -7 and he was a first rounder. even jason ward is just above useless on the ranger team.

He may not be THE problem but he certainly is part of the problem. He's just not doin' what he did last year and that was giving the team energy with big thuderous hits and some fights. He's not a spark plug

like he was last year. And I think that they should call someone up from Hamilton to be that spark plug cause he's not getting that job done. And I know he's not they only one who isn't doin' the same as last year but this isn't their thread it Murray's! lol

I would have deffinatly of said these words about Murray.... last season but not this one. But at least Hossa got an game winning shootout goal for the Ranger which is alot more than Murray has done for the team. I 'm not trying to defending Hossa but seeing how you brought up Hossa' flaws I thought I would bring up Murray's.
