Thoughts on the Doug Murray signing

It's hot and sunny, so this will be short and sweet: good move. Bergevin gets a veteran defenceman to help bridge the period that Alexei Emelin will miss while recovering from surgery, one who can move the puck a little bit and is good positionally. He's also very intelligent, and has a very successful patent, but that's a story for another day.

Back to summer, but only two weeks until the action begins. Should the Habs make another addition, a veteran forward would make sense. With Murray in tow, eight defencemen are on one way contracts, and the back end is shored up.

Once again, well done, M. Bergevin. To everyone else, enjoy the last days of non-hockey weather!

Murray was HORRIBLE for the Penguins. Hopefully he can regain his Sharks form.

Can’t believe they signed Murray with Brett Lebda still out there

About The Upper Canadien

The Upper Canadien is your one stop shop for all things Montreal Canadiens. Since the summer of 2010, I've been providing Habs related news, notes, and most importantly, opinions. As a blogger, I don't believe it's my job to report the news, it's my privilege to comment on it. You may disagree with what I suggest. In fact, you most likely will. But that's the great part about blogging: it spurs opinion, comment and engages all involved. I've really enjoyed all the debate and commentary from readers thus far and I encourage everyone to respond with ideas on lineups, trades, logos, sweaters, mascots, whatever. The Upper Canadien is a conversation for all hockey fanatics.

I've come to Kukla's Korner with four years of campus radio and three years of sportswriting from my time at Mount Allison University on Canada's East coast. Not only do I not have any professional journalistic training, after five years in the corporate world, I've spent much of the past two years completing an MBA. Business by day, hockey by night, I'm a Canadiens fan through and through. I hope you enjoy reading as much as I do writing.
