I'm now wondering if the Avs, who're in need of a 2nd line winger, can pry Murray or Samsonov out of there for a bag of magic beans.
Seems the sharks needed defensemen as well with 80 GA 3rd to last in the NHL so iam guessing they are not done trading, this move will help their GF which was 3rd to last as well.
