The Pens are going for it. Per everyone on Twitter, they've acquired 6'3, 240lb defenseman Douglas Murray from the San Jose Sharks for a 2nd and 3rd round draft pick (the 3rd becomes another 2nd if the Pens advance past the second round of the playoffs).
If all you know about Murray is he dated Tiger Woods' ex, let us fill you in: he's a guy that we've watched for a while and thought to ourselves, "The Pens would be better if we had some of the beast-like defensemen in San Jose." He's gigantic and has played a lot of minutes (17 minutes a game this year) on a team that's been good the last seven years. This is exactly what we've been advocating for: a crease-clearing monster who will be the yin to Letang/Niskanen/Martin's yang.
|Look at this f-ing guy.|
