Re: Anointed too young

by Randy


There were dozens of moves the Tips could have made at almost zero cost to bring in a seasoned guy to lead them. But that would have nullified the plan to make him he next one. I am not minimizing the impact Murray had in Everett. He is a pretty good hockey player for the WHL level and his calmness and composure make him able to step up and stay anonymously 'okay' at the next level. But this is another classic case of a player being hyped beyond their own capabilities in a market hungry for heroes, by a team hungry for an identity. I hate to bring it up because I will lool like I am piling on, but the only time Murray saw world class competition in his career, he crumbled against the Russians. he nearly single handedly cost the team the game because he could not process at that speed. I blame this whole thing on the hype machine that just needs to make these kids bigger than they are.
