Murray has been skating again and may play out the last couple of games in the 2014-15 regular season. In a season that has been rendered essentially useless, I ask myself this question: why the hell risk him to possible further injury? Most people will argue that hockey is a contact sport that exposes players to possible injury all the time which is a fair point but the discussion...
