Sharks trade Douglas Murray to the Penguins

The San Jose Sharks have traded defenseman Douglas Murray to the Pittsburgh Penguins for 2013 and 2014 second round draft picks. The second pick in 2014 based on the Penguins winning two playoff rounds or the Penguins re-signing him. If neither occurs, it’s a third round pick in 2014.

The 33-year Murray will be an unrestricted free agent at the end of the season. He carries a $2.5 million salary cap hit this season.

He was drafted by the Sharks in 1999, 241st overall in the 8th round.

    pitts will surely be in the cup finals. the east conf is looking weaker and weaker by the day in comparison to pitts and the trades they just made…

    san jose wins the trade, but i think pitts has become the favorite to win the cup this year…

    Looks like Pittsburgh is “loaded for bear” as the saying goes…

    Hmm…late 2nd round picks are not exactly the most valuable of draft picks. Interesting. How is he playing this season? That clears up some cap space.

    Yeah, looks like Pitts is going for a cup run. This is a really deep draft year, so I would say that the second this year is valuable, next years I’m less sure. Either way, Pittsburgh is making moves, hopefully other teams follow suit. You gotta wonder about their prospect pool though.
