Rutherford And Canes Avoid Disaster

Douglas Murray (a defensive version of Kevin Westgarth) was traded to the Pittsburgh Penguins today for two second rounders (a huge overpayment).

Then this came out...

The Carolina Hurricanes made a hard pitch for the D Douglas Murray but were outbid by Pittsburgh's Ray Shero. #Tradetracker

Luckily JR didn't go batshit crazy and offer a first for Murray.

Here's to JR for not f*cking up for the first time in his life.

Wow. Murray isn't even all that great anymore.

Also, I totally get being angry at JR because of the defense but the guy has usually been ace when making trades for the last half decade. I don't expect Yandle but I do expect someone serviceable on the back end and some bottom six help when the deadline comes around.

    • Yeah.... a single person of a religion encompassing over a billion people on the planet.  I don't see social media blowing up with the Muslim community in the western part of the world denouncing these attacks.  When Dillon Roof happened, there were a lot of Christians that denounced him immediately and repeatedly.  The point is that effective change for this extremism must come from within those communities.   The tide is turning, but people within those communities still feel fear of reprisal from within their culture for saying anything that could be construed as aligning with anti-Muslim stances.  Those dangers shouldn't be summarily dismissed for those that are brave enough to take this stand. I also stated that the media needs to do their part in accurately portraying these denouncements.  What I see instead is the media propping up ridiculous caricatures of people rather than your average person.  
    • The drive killing penalties he gets, lazy route running, and drops offset his potential upside. He is better suited as a tight end in this league
    • ..... the Panthers will usually tweet the most flattering videos.   (Pours gas on fire)
