Lesser players than Brad Stuart will be traded for more than a goddamn 7th round conditional draft pick. Andrew Murray is not only **** worthless, he's a UFA too.
Can't wait til some scrub gets dealt for a 3rd or 4th rounder.
I don't understand why you'd be upset. He was going to be a free agent and, if I'm not mistaken, he had made it pretty clear he wanted to sign with one of the California teams. So there was a slim to none chance he was staying in Detroit and had he not been traded you would have received nothing when he signed elsewhere in a few weeks.
As a Sharks fan, I would rather just wait until July to sign him and keep the 7th, but I have a feeling DW made this deal so he could get Brad signed allowing him to trade one of our current D-men on draft day.
Location: You would know about being more in tune if you were MORE IN TUNE
I know they'd want to take care of their unrestricted guys before dealing with all of their RFA, and they also have a mountain of cap space to work with, but David Jones and Matt Hunwick just don't seem like they needed those contracts. Going to be a lot of interesting contracts to come from Colorado this offseason.
