Afternoon Line

“I think I’m a pretty simple player. What you see is what you get. In order for me to be successful, I need to defend really well, number one, and [I need to] be a big, physical presence out there.” I definitely have a [will] to win and I bring a lot of competitiveness. It’s nothing flashy; I don’t think anyone has ever used that word to describe me as a player. I’m a steady player and the excitement probably comes from the physicality department.”

-Douglas Murray of the Montreal Canadiens via the Habs website where you can read more from Murray.

The knock on Murray may be that the physical game he plays has taken a toll, and his falling time on ice numbers show it.

Apropos of nothing, I think this means every team but Buffalo (and, well, Detroit) in the new Atlantic division has now acquired a player who last played for a western conference team this off season. Might Buffalo follow suit and maybe look at Brunner or invite Cleary to their camp? Seems like a good fit.
