See Ya, Murph.

The Devils put Cory Murphy on waivers today.  I’m sure you’re heartbroken.

I’d like to take full credit for this move, as it comes the day after I go public on this very weblog with my formerly private belief that ANDY GREENE = WINS, but I think Murphy himself had something to do with it as well.

Like that Evander Kane goal in the Thrashers game Friday night, for example.  Yeah, that wasn’t one of Murph’s finer NHL moments.

So what’s this mean?  It means that Cory’s got himself a ticket to Lowell in 24 hours, unless some team in desperate need of a defenseman picks him up.  If he survives the waiver wire and hits Lowell, his contract is such that he wouldn’t have to pass through re-entry waivers to be called back up to the big club, so there’s hope for Murph yet.

The move does come as little shock, though, as Andy Greene has been playing redonkulous (yes, I went there) in the games that he’s been in.  And, of course, Andy Greene = Wins, as previously mentioned here (vote in our poll, by the way.  It’s Andy Greene = Wins related.)

The one sad part of this move?  The Devils went from two good Irish names to none in the course of less than three weeks.


  1. lmao at the picture

  2. Can someone please explain to me how this is the third season in a row that Andy’s had to start the year at 7th slot only to be bumped up to 6th shortly after the season starts? Why is nobody able to see how awesome he is?

  3. The important thing is that WE see it, Aaron. WE see it.

    Sometimes, if you stand so close to awesome, it’s harder to see it. Like say, as a coach or teammate or general manager. You have to step back to appreciate the true awesome. Like that of a fan, observer, or moderately interesting blogger.

    This move proves that maybe it’s getting through to Lou and Jacques, though.

  7. “so there’s hope for Murph yet.”
    As a Met fan, I have actualy heard this quote amny times and it’s always the same answer, no there isnt.

  8. Only thing that could equal the awesome of McLangenbrunner would be the uber-Irish O’Oduya.
