douglas murray

douglas murray is round: a study

PH Staff digs the Douglas Murray trade because:

1. picks are whatever.  If we end up needing them we have plenty of assets with which to get them back.  But somehow I don't think it's gonna come to that.

2. Does everyone realize what "win now" means?  Shero is trying to fill roster holes by inserting grit.  Morrow is a combo of grit, skill, and veteran presence.  Shero made the trade for morrow on the supposition that good linemates will awaken his skill and drive.  Also, being wanted in Pittsburgh to fulfill a role means a lot.  A lot that he wasn't getting in Dallas.  As for our good friend Crankshaft, he hasn't played well in about two years and that's because SAN JOSE IS A FUCKING MESS.  But his body is huge and he will brutalize people.

Also his perfect head.


god he is so good

Not what you think of when you think Swedish defenseman but we'll bite.

come to us boo

we don't really care if you can skate super well but please wreck somebody on your way to the corner thx

non-Pens fans trolling that the Pens got a 33-year-old and 37-year-old at the expense of future draft picks and a prospect.  What, because we didn't do well enough getting idk Crosby, Malkin, Jordan Staal, Kris Letang, MAF, Beau Bennett, Simon Despres?  are we supposed to cry about the fact that two of our recent draft picks have been huge factors this season and that WE HAVE ALREADY BEEN THROUGH A REBUILDING STAGE THAT WON US THE FUCKING STANLEY CUP?  are we supposed to be like nooooo that's our future there in the second round and we'll never compete for a Cup again or what?

Murray and Morrow have huge chances to re-make their careers in Pittsburgh and we've seen it happen before.  And recently.
Bill Guerin.  Matt Niskanen.
remember the Hal Gill trade?  jesus
