Habs Sign Douglas Murray

1 year deal, no numbers yet.

Good move. Needed some depth. Hopefully it's under 2 so there's still some wiggle room there.

I was just going to put that up, Keeps, you beat me to it.

"Murray will be joining the Habs for the 2013-2014 campaign.

Canadiens GM Marc Bergevin announced today the signing of free agent Doug Murray to a 1 year contract through the 2013-2014 season.

Murray, 33, will begin his 9th NHL campaign, after completing the 2012-13 season in a split with the San Jose Sharks and the Pittsburgh Penguins.

In 33 games played last year Murray put up 1 goal, 5 assists and 35 PIM.

The 6'3, 245 lbs defenseman will bring some much needed toughness to the Habs defensive corps, and will provide insurance as Alexander Emelin recovers from his injury."

"

I like his size and toughness.... but I don't like him possibly squeezing out the decent D-squad we have already.

I think MB and MT will have a good look at him, during the camp and pre-season games, to see if he "fits".

I

was kinda hoping they would bring Gill back for another year real cheap, like league min. I guess Murray is a good fit though.

imagine having them both, what would we call them, the roadblock, twin towers :lol:

I really liked Gill, I like those blue collar players who use their hockey smarts and experience to make up for lak of skill. i was one of the few people around here to defend Gill.

But even in his prime he was painfully slow, if he were to come back, I'd see him behind our bench with the coaching staff. Because he didn't have natural talent and had to work harder than naturally skilled players, he knows what hard work is all about and give our youngins (like Tinordi), tips and tricks he picked up through his career.

I'm actually happier about the Murray signing than i was about the Briere one.

I like Gill, and I am glad he played for the habs, and also glad he has a ring.
