Thomas Townsend: CBJ Must Re-Sign Ryan Murray
- Thomas Townsend

I'll go on saying the cbj don't need Murray as much as we think , in fact he could fetch as high as a second rounder in a market that is dry on defensman.

He has second pairing skill, but he's injury prone, yes he could of been very usefull versus Boston but so would Nuutivara who gave fits to the lightning offence.

If he resigns it better not be more then 3.5 , he's made of glass.

Don’t follow the jackets much but with the numbers he’s put up early in his career I can’t see ZW getting any less than 6 mill on a long term deal, he’s a hell of a dman.

I would think Murray could net more than a 2nd round pick.

Can't do quotes but as a Habs fan I'd look at a 2nd for Murray or something in that range

I completely agree which is why I believe he should be re-signed. I just don't believe the market is there for him and I think he could be signed for around $3M, which is a steal for his skill - as long as he is on the ice and not hurt.

"I would think Murray could net more than a 2nd round pick."

To help get out of cap hell & sign Marner, how 'bout Murray for Nylander ??

that would probably be good, because Columbus doesn't have a 2nd round pick until 2022
