New Murray Rumor

From hockeytraderumors and www.thebuzzontheburgh.blogspot.com

Penguins have contacted the Bruins about the availability of Glen Murray. What makes this interesting is Shero came very close to landing center Brad Boyes this offseason in exchange for Ryan Malone and prospect Eric Christensen. The Bruins declined and countered that defenseman Noah Welch be included into the deal. Ray Shero declined but with Ryan Whitney developing into a #1 defenseman, play of young defenseman Kris Letang, it is believed that Shero may offer Malone (1.3 million) and Welch to land Murray. It makes sense for both teams. The Bruins save some cap money but add a future #2 defenseman and a 20-25 goal scorer and the Penguins obtain a top flight winger to play with Crosby and Malkin.

The Boston Globe is reporting that Glen Murray is on the trading block and the Bruins want a proven goal scorer and young prospect in return. The Buzzontheburgh has learned that Ray Shero did in fact come close to pulling off a deal for center iceman Brad Boyes this summer. When the Bruins signed Marc Savard in the early goings of free agency, Shero looked into the availability of Boyes. An offer of Ryan Malone and Eric Christensen was declined and the Bruins countered with Malone and Welch which was declined by Shero. What makes that proposed deal in the summer interesting, is an hockey insider was on the show of Espn radio WAMG-AM 890 of Boston yesterday afternoon and reported that Bruins have received a call from Pittsburgh regarding the availability of Glen Murray. It is believed the Penguins may counter with the same kind of offer and this time may include Welch to bring in the proven winger. Stay tuned

Matt's Take: BS. Sounds like an okay deal, but I doubt it happens.

55 goal pace? Yeah lets trade him. Stupid rumors by people that have replaced Gill with Murray for their whipping boy. To many people spend to much time trying to hate the Bruins to be real fans and don't give me the "it's the same old Bruins crap" they did evrything this past off-season the fans have wanted for years and they still bitch like school girls

look at this
Was Zdeno Chara on the ice for Boston tonight?

Wow ! How the mighty have fallen !

The guy does not have Redden, Phillips, Maszaros, Pothier and the gang to support him anymore.

Z looked lost at times on the ice. They expect him to carry the mail every shift.

Hope the 7.5 Large was worth it .

Doubt they'll trade for Malone now, he has a broken arm and is out for 4-6 weeks, but knowing our Bruins, maybe they will.
