Glen Murray: Trade or Keep?

Many people want to send Glen Murray packing. Muzzy had 28 goals last season, but only played in 52 games. The Bruins were awful without him. He is their best pure scorer. Bochenski reminds me a lot of him. Murray's cap hit is 4.15 for 2 more seasons. He may not be as good as he used to be, but is still a solid player. At 4.15, he would be less than 10% of the projected 50 million dollar cap. Who is going to replace that production for a 4.15 price tag? Guys like Hartnell are going to get that much and they have never cracked 50 points. Chris Drury will get 6 million and only had 60+ points. Murray is a guy YOU KNOW will produce. Not these 1 year wonder prospects. What makes you beleive Pomminville from Buffalo is going to score 30 goals again? Muzzy scored almost 30 on one of the worst offensive teams in the league.

My verdict? Keep Murray.

Muzz is one of the few players on the current team that could bring someone of value in return. I agree he is a proven scorer, but to get value you must give up some value. All said and done, are the bruins closer to the Cup with him or is it better to bring in a younger player with potential for the next three years?

Murray won't make the B's a cup contender by himself. He's getting old and 4 per for an unidimensionnal player is too much when you look at the B's situation. The B's need that 4 per to patch some hole. You may like the guy but Boston will not be close to be a winning team in a 2 years span.
