Thanks for filling me in on some history :)
Regarding Murray, the issue I see is that he's going to want a big money contract just 1 year from UFA with arbitration rights. He knows that he's had a down season so wants to cash in now while he can still lean on his 2 cups. We have Annunen on the way in ~2 years so it might not be prudent to make any long-term big-money moves. A $6m goaltender signed throughout our cup window simply HAS to be a hit, because if he fails and plays at a backup level well then that's a huge dent in our cup chances.
Now, if the price to acquire Murray is reasonably cheap (i.e. not Burakovsky), and he is willing to sign a reasonable contract (<$5.5m x <5 years), then I'd think about it. But I doubt he takes that deal and I doubt JR wants what we would be offering for Murray.</div></div>
It might take less than that. This is just what my ask would be. Haha. I wouldn't let him go for nothing or to get rid of him. He still has the capacity to win 3-1 and 4-3 playoff games. He needs a better effort in front of him, though. And he can only steal 1 game per series in all likelihood. For supremely talented teams, like a team with Mack, Mak, Rant, Land, etc. All of your fun young talent ans Landeskog as the de facto old gun just bc the rest of the squad is so young, MM could be a great guy in your system.
If the Avs are interested, I'm sure guys like Cole are pushing for him.
<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>Richard88</b></div><div>Can you name those journalists? I only recall this rumour starting from PIThockeyNow which is Adrian Dater's friend and colleage. So basically it's Adrian Dater making up unfounded rumours... again.
Burakovsky just had a season pacing 64points, and scored 17 goals in 15 playoff games. In his career he also hsa 9 goals in 9 elimination games, including 4 goals in 6 game 7's. If he can keep that up going forward it will be great value at 5-5.5.
Rust is older and only has 1 season playing on Malkins line with good scoring, and crucially only has 2 year term.</div></div>
Rust is like 2 years older, played roughly the same amount of games this year and produced more, has two years of term, unlike Burakovsky who has none, I know they do have rights, and Rust is known as a big game player. I don't know the total for Rust, but I do remmeber against Tampa he scored 3 goals in game 6 and 7 alone.
They are comparable. If anything, Rust might be the more complete player because be consistently has more points and he plays PK and blocks shots.
I gave a pretty good package compared to what people generally give Rust in value.
