Lewis Tinkering

According to the Herald, Dave Lewis would like to start the season with a first line compose with Bergeron-Boyes-Kessel and a second line with Savard-Murray and Sturm. It looks good to me but I still think that it would be dangerous to separate Sturm from Bergeron since they were so productive together last year.

It seems to me that at least in this configuration the first line would be Sturm-Savard-Murray. At the very least, it would seem a tossup as to which line is considered No. 1.

It was earlier asked who we thought might be the biggest surprise of the season. With the attention on Bergeron and Chara, my vote goes to Muzz. It's even been written that he's nothing but trade bait. It seems he'll either have a bust or a huge year. I'm betting on huge.

I think your analysis on Murray is right. Murray was,always, a 25-30 goals scorer even in L.A. He became a dangerous sniper when Boston matched him with JT. The signing of Savard indicate that the front office, in his evaluation, consider Murray as a part of the solution.

As far for the trade bait thing... I think it will depend on many factors including the kind of season Murray and Sturm will have. Remember that Sturm will be a free agent at the end of the year and will command some money. There's always a possibility that a team, who consider her self as a contender,decide to pull the trigger on Murray and relieve his 4 millions off the cap. But,at 4 millions, Murray will be a tough client to sell...
