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.
"People always think that you aim for certain guys more, but you don't," he said. "If the opportunity's there, you take it. When I was younger, maybe I was running around trying to hit guys more. Now, it kind of comes to me more than anything. You would never target a guy that has a concussion. These days I hope to not put them on the ice while they still have a problem with their head. I would never do that."
"I've changed my hitting a little bit with the new rules, as well," Murray said. "I'm the first to admit, if you look back at some of my hits from a couple years ago, I probably would have got a blindside — like when the guy's not looking your way and you're hitting him."
