Look, Im sure Murray was thinking the same thing but probably got stubborn or something when it came to prices he was seeing. Maybe hes had discussions and a few other GMs have agreed to wait until post season. Maybe hes a boob and needs to be canned.

Except I would have done it last year.
Considering the knot he got his johnson in last summer with re-signing his significant RFA's, I think he just signed up for another go-round this summer. #anotherknotinmydick
