Like the Leafs, the Penguins are not done making moves and the team has already made it known that they would like to move off from one of their goalies.
Murray appears to be the more likely option to be moved over Tristan Jarry as he did not have his best regular season. In 38 games this season, the 26-year-old had a 20-11-5 record with a 2.87 GAA and a .899 save percentage.
As a restricted free agent, you have to wonder what Murray will be looking for in his next deal as a restricted free agent. He just finished off a three-year deal where he had a $3.75 million cap hit which was certainly a reasonable number but he certainly could get a raise given his resume.
Toronto has a connection to Murray since Kyle Dubas was the GM of the Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds when Murray was the starter. The Leafs GM has not been shy of going back to his roots with players that he has acquired and that could be the case again.
What Murray brings to the table is someone who played a pivotal in both Stanley Cups wins for the Penguins in 2016 and 2017. That can’t be looked past especially when you consider the Leafs struggles to get past the first round.
