Pittsburgh acquired Jarome Iginla, Brenden Morrow and Douglas Murray to bolster its Stanley Cup hopes, but could adding veteran players to an established group create problems? Recent history in Washington suggests loading up at the trade deadline isn't a fool-proof plan.
Few players in the NHL hit like San Jose Sharks defenseman Douglas Murray. In open ice, he can hammer opponents with the precision and power that's hard to measure.
"I get less hits, but I probably a better player for the team because I don't get myself out of position," he said. "That's the hardest thing when you're going to be a physical player, and they know you're a physical player. People are not dumb around the league; they know where you are, and they expect me coming. You can easily get yourself out of position if you're looking for it."
"You've got to adjust with the times," Murray said. "But once you have the timing down to do those, you should have the timing to do legal ones within the rules, too."
