Glenn Murray on Waivers

http://www.boston.com/sports/hockey/

The Bruins have placed Glen Murray on unconditional waivers, the first step of the buyout process.

If Murray goes unclaimed and the Bruins complete the buyout, they will trim $2,766,667 from their 2008-09 cap hit, bringing their current number down to $55,469,999. They will carry Murray’s remaining money of $1,383,333 on their 2009-10 payroll.

    He'd be a great addistion to the nucks if we can get him on re-entry, but i'm sure a lot of teams will take him for 2 million ahead of us.

    LA Kings shoudl pick him up at 4 million off waivers actually.. don't they need to add 12 million in salary anyways?

  2. Rickler says:

    It'd be nice to see him in San Jose for cheap playing with Big Joe again.      

  3. BlueOrangeWhite says:

    Isles who are absolutely desperate for offense, should consider him.

    If you're the Habs and need a guy with size – why not take the flyer on glenn Murray?

    If you're the LA Kings – why not?

    The Pens possibly?

    Chances are though he'll get bought out and sign with Calgary – it seems to be the way things are going these days haha!

    Lots of teams would pick him up on re entry. Wouldn't be surprised even if the leafs did.

    I hope edmonton can take him off of re-entry waivers if hes not claimed yet..

    The one thing some people have to realize is yes Glen has had a couple off years. This is not due to any sort of slump. It is a direct result of Glen not physically capable of playing in the NHL anymore. The speed of the game has past him by and he cannot get into scoring situations fast enough anymore. He doesn't have time to fire the puck like he used to. He is slow and really only could be serviceable on the 3rd or 4th line as a checker and used sparingly on the PP.

    I am a long time Bruins fan and after watching him play in the Habs/Bruins playoff series it was dreadful. 7 games and zero points. A $4.15 million player that looked really out of place and zero production. His salary and space in the lineup killed them last year.

    He may be serviceable at $2 million or $1.5 million a season. But if you think he can provide you the scoring your looking for and play in the top 6 forwards you will be dissapointed.

    This is a great move by Chiarelli. Glen needs to go.

    If you're the Habs and need a guy with size, you're not going to take a flyer on Glen Murray. He doesn't use his body to his advantage at all, unless the Habs are looking for a guy with size that's slow and sucks now, then they could take a chance.

  9. leafy says:

    He'll probably clear waivers, as GMs are probably hoping he'll be bought out by the Bruins, then he could be signed for much cheaper.

    Regardless he's no longer physically capable of playing the way he used to.

    "Even if"?

    This is a team that siged Allison and O'Neill.

    The track record is there.

  11. tacitus says:

    i hope a division rival signs him… then i hope that team beats Boston out of the playoffs and i hope Glen gets atleast 1 game winner vs Boston all while Boston is covering part of his salary

    LA still has 5 RFAs to sign.  They will get to the cap min easily.

  13. ericthered1961 says:

    LOL….sounds like bitterness to me…are you a relative of Glen's?

  14. Tweek says:

    Of all the teams who needs this guy the most?  I'd have to say Montreal.  Although he is definitely not the player he once was Montreal could really use a forward of his size.

  15. mojo19 says:

    JFJ signed Allison. And they actually traded for O'Neil, not "signed". Got you on that one Radio. Another technical error by Radio-douche.

    Oh by the way, at the beginning of last season didn't your Sens express interest in that very same O'Neil, but he declined?

  16. tacitus says:

    nah im a Wings fan… just never liked the fact teams make stupid moves like that in the first place them go complain about not having enough offence…. calgary did that in te 90's when they traded marc savard for nothing then at the deadline said they needed to add offense

  17. sweepa8989 says:

    are you guys serious? Murray sucked last year.  He's way past his prime and just takes up space on the ice.  I watched about 80 Bruins games last season and the more id watch him the more id hate him.  I realize he once was a great players but he isnt anymore and i wouldnt want him on my team taking valuable ice time away from players who can actually still play the game.

  18. mojo19 says:

    i could see it happening. I don't think Murray will bring a ton of offense but maybe around 15-20 goals.

  19. hockeyhead says:

    well stick to the wings because the bruins letting muzz go is not stupid at all.

    4+ million for an aging, oft-injured,  non-scoring sniper is a weight on the cap.

    as a bruin fan i am kinda sad to see muzz go but it is best for the bruins.

    and marc savard has only been a big time point producer for the last few seasons.
