    Default How to value Murray in a keeper?

    With only 62 regular season games under his belt, I'm having a hard time putting a value on Murray, especially with MAF likely heading to Vegas this summer. Where do you value him?

    My league is a points only with the standard scoring rules - GA, SV, W, SHO and I was thinking of trading Lundqvist away this summer for someone younger, especially since I have Bishop behind and feel I can take the risk on a younger guy with less than 100 games under his belt.

    I think he can be valued around the 10 range with a chance to move up a touch if he stays healthy for a full season.

    I would value him as a perennial top 10 G for the next 10-15 years, health-permitting, beginning as soon as MAF is out of the way. Maybe the guy who owns him in your league is a dummy and you can get a good deal but I think its going to cost you quite a bit more than Hank to get Murray.

    The asking price in my league that I'm aware is a Rakell and Barkov duo for Murray. Which I'd never think you trade them for lundquist so I doubt you would get that

    If I'm reading this right and you can flip Hank for Murray then I'd do it...

    He just got traded for Letang and Hellebuyck in the league I play in. I don't know how much that helps.

    I own Henrik and Murray and am keeping Murray no contest. You got yourself a 22 year old goalie who is more than likely getting the Vasilevsky style promotion this summer on a good team with two franchise centers still in prime. Henrik is 35 the significant drop off will come some will argue it is already here and hey he sure is not 25 anymore but is still of value. Nonetheless this is a future investment that must be made if it can be done. You get back 13 years on the deal and you need not worry about the blue paint for many seasons.

    I would trade Hank for Murray

    I would also trade Rakell + Barkov for Murray

    If necessary, I'd also trade Bishop + player for Murray

    Basically you should try to get Murray

    Does Murray's starting of yearly injury not scare anyone?

    People are wayyy too carried away with the injuries he’s had in not even 1.5 years in the league. The kid is a stud and had a string of bad luck.

    Some seem to already forget his stellar 2016 playoffs where he Ken Drydened his team to a Stanley Cup championship by winning a cup as a rookie goalie.

    These are the same people who were questioning McDavid’s health before the season since he got injured as a rookie AND his last year of junior and then he scored 100 points and won an Art Ross.

    I own Murray so I’m biased, but if I didn’t, I’d pay a hefty price to grab him. Young stud 22 year old goalies are rare these days and Murray is one of them. Fleury’s days in Pittsburgh are numbered like Bishop was in Tampa.
