Craig Custance at The Sporting News wonders about Glen Murray:
So now what? It’s widely assumed that Murray will be bought out by the Bruins. The Boston Globe’s Fluto Shinzawa talked with Boston GM Peter Chiarelli and Chiarelli acknowledged that this was a tough decision, but needed the flexibility. “It’s not written in stone that he’ll be bought out, but it is a step toward that,” Chiarelli told Shinzawa.
Now, there might not have been takers for Murray at $4.15 million, but he becomes a viable option for a team looking for help on the wing if he gets bought out.
I certainly wouldn’t cry about him playing for my favorite team for a modest discount, but who knows how much of a price cut will be available? As Murray’s agent tells Custance, he expects a strong market for his client.
But if that doesn’t work out, it seems that Murray can always blame Mats Sundin for his troubles…
