Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Curtis Zupke of Ducks Blog at the OC Register,
Bob Murray inherited a lot of responsibility when he stepped into Brian Burke’s general manager shoes last November.
He also inherited a mess.
Already a key member of the organization’s brain trust, Murray was given the reins to a club that had established a winning culture and is expected to maintain it in the mad salary cap era.
To that end, Murray has largely steered the Ducks out of the financial handcuffs that Burke had placed on them in order to get the Stanley Cup in 2007.
The Ducks will enter the 2009-10 season with breathing room in the salary cap, unlike in years past where tight numbers resulted in the sacrificial player movement that saw Bobby Ryan start last season in Iowa.
