I hate conditional draft picks, I wish they would be more forth coming on what conditions are there and what they will mean.

As expected I thought maybe it would have been Anaheim but isn't the Sharks the team that drafted him? I think so. Good luck the rest of the way out Stu :P Be cheering against you from now on :P

Stuart leaving is a bigger loss than most realize. He takes a lot of crap around here from some who fail to see just how good he was overall for four years here. Sure, he wasn't perfect, but there aren't many who come even close to great, let alone very good, and Stuart was without a doubt very, very, very good and a very important part of the Wings defensive puzzle over the last four years. Losing him and Nick in one fell swoop is rough.

If Holland can't make some big things happen, we're likely to have a rough season ahead of us. Thankfully, for once, I think Holland knows he has to be more pro-active and aggressive than he's had to be at any point in his career. If ever there was a sink or swim time for the Wings management, it's now.

Also, not expecting this pick to hang around for long. Whenever Holland trades for the rights of one of his big targets, this will be in the package no doubt.

Agreed. I always thought Stuart was a great d man. I think moving his rights was Hollands first step in being more pro-active this off season. Glad we got something for him rather than nothing.. Can't wait to see what else happens this off season.

Quincey is a lot like Stuart, a little less physical but a better skater and a little more skilled and much younger

Hopefully Quincey will step up his game, as well as Ericcson. Stuart was pretty bad this year his heart was in Cali it seemed.

Hmm I dont know much about this Murray.. 6'2, 220 lbs,played 39 games with San Jose last year and 10 with Worcester, I wonder if he was hurt or something?

Hes a center, could the writing be on the wall for Emmerton and the wings want some size down the middle and in the bottom 6?

Anyone think the Wings have any intention of signing Murray? (UFA also I believe) or will he used in any future deals before free agency?

Kenny has already stated that Kyle was got for this scenario. Just gotta get someone in to try and fill

a little of the void left by Nic.

I don't think I would say he is "a lot like" Stuart. They both play a somewhat different style game in my opinion.

Murry is a former Blue Jacket who bounced between the NHL and AHL. I think he is a serviceable plugger. However I do not know how he fits in our roster.

Murray is listed at 6'2 215lbs....maybe he is the "big bottom six center" we are going to aquire... :ph34r:

Yeah Holland has his work cut out for him this off season. We've now lost 3 of our top 4 D-men in the last 2 off seasons and have only gained white and quincey. Suter is a must, but we're gonna need a second strong D-man to be brought in as well.

Would have been better if it were Doug Murray. :D

Good luck, Stewie! Thanks for the great years you spent here. You've left us with a whole lot of highlight reel hip checks.

A big hole has just been left in our defense.
