The NHL General Managers Will Honor Bryan Murray

from Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Citizen,

As a general rule, it's an honour that has been saved for general managers who are retired.

Fortunately, there are exceptions to every rule.

But Senators GM Bryan Murray admitted he was hesitent to accept the invitation to be recognized by his 29 other peers during the NHL general managers meetings Monday night because it's something normally not done.

Accompanied by his wife Geri -- and with his nephew Tim Murray (GM of the Buffalo Sabres) in the room -- Bryan Murray is well aware this could be an emotional night in a lot of ways.

"I am and I'm not (looking forward to it)," said Murray. "I look at it always as the guys who had retired and they were honouring them in that way. It's a nice honour obviously when you are in the league this long when you have the chance to be recognized for longevity, if nothing else, it's good."

Wow, I have to say that is pretty crazy that he hasn’t missed a day of work. Stage 4 colon cancer is no joke…there are about two dozen different chemo regimes out there and they’re all nasty.
