    This guy is a wall on skates. Too bad he'll be sitting for MT's loverboy Bouillon when Emelin will come back.

    That call was questionable, though. Seemed like a reverse-hit to me, as Murray was the one who touched the puck last and Kreider was coming in on him.

    He should break bouillon in practice.

    When he did it, my imidiate thought was:"I had forgotten what a real hit was".

    Fantastic hit. It was interference -- Kreider never touches the puck -- but damn, I want Murray to make that type of clean hit every single time, even if it means taking a penalty for it. It scares opposition from getting too close towards the blue line and it wakes up the Habs bench as well.

    It's those kinds of hits we were lacking with Emelin out.


    And honestly would rather have Murray in the Bottom Pairing than Bouillion.....but would MUCH rather Diaz be moved to make room for him

    Srsly, ever since Emelin was injured, was there a memorable check given by a Habs player (besides in the playoffs, but that doesn't count because, intensity goes up - I mean, proof to back that up is that freaking Bourque gave a huge hit to Alfredsson in that playoffs - don't see that often).

    Anyways, going back to the prime point, NO ONE in this team is capable of producing a physical game. You have this Swede beast coming in his 1ST game and delivering the most brutal hit we've seen this season so far and, I think, ever since Emelin got his knee tendons tore.

    Would be fun to see BOTH Emelin and Murray on the ice... but something something Bouillon...

    I loved Dave Reid's reaction and chuckle when hes describing the replay.

    Yeah, I can only remember big hits in the preseason by Tinordi.

    I thought Murray played fairly well considering the circumstances.

    Honestly, I'm a big fan of our young D (NB, JT, GP) but I feel much better having Murray on the bottom pairing.

    Hopefully Emelin can return to form and boot Diaz out of the top 4.

    Murray, Emelin, and Subban allon different pairings,will have guys on the opposition with their heads up, and being a little more careful entering the zone...:handclap:

    Murray also looked fairly good around the net, trying to clear the crease...

    I hope it's a Murray-Diaz 5/6 pairing once Emelin is back.

    I love how Murray plays the puck and Krieder comes in to hit him and gets laid out and Murray get's an interference penalty. Horrid call.

    I know the guy can't skate, but man does it feel good to see hits like this from Hab. Great pick up by MB for 1.5m

    Dont know man. I dont like what i see on the ice from Diaz but when you look at the facts, he plays 20 or so minutes per game, has a +1 differential and scored 4 points out of 12 games. It might not be mind blowing but if he's playing sound defensively then using him as a 3rd/4th defenseman makes sense.

    In my opinion, he's not any worse than Spacek/Hamrlik were.

    You mean Parros, Prust, Moen (a little anyway) and Emelin?

    Which sucks, but at least we do have it. You can't carry enough of any type of player to account for the kind of injuries we have right now.

    Can't wait until we play against the Sens, he disturbed the hole team last year in the playoffs while he was in Pittsburgh

    I thought he played well for his first game. He's tough but he also has a very active stick that makes up for his slow foot speed. It was nice to see on the ice at the end of the game... couldn't have had that with Beaulieu and Tinordi.
