Glen Murray, What to do?

Glen Murray, aka Muzzy, what do we do?  Well, we can do several things...

  1. Trade Murray 
  2. Buyout Murray with a cap cost of 1.88 over 2 years. (2/3 his salary at twice the length).
  3. Demote Muzzy to minors with salary of 4.15 million but no cap charge.
He is a good goal scorer still, but his legs are gone and his shot with them.  He is no longer a 30 goal scorer, which I thought he could be last year, and is more of a 20 guy at max and is injury prone.  

I would try to trade him, but not bad contract for bad contract, since Murray has only 1 year left.  If no deal can be reached, then it becomes hard.  Do you demote him and eat the entire salary, or buy him out at 2/3 his deal.  Because Glen has done so much for this team, I think it is unfair to demote him and have him rot in the AHL when he could sign a lesser deal elsewhere, but at the same time that 1.88 cap hit in the next 2 years could become annoying, and by demoting him, you save yourself some room.  Personally, as long as he isn't taking a 4.15 million cap hit next year, I don't care what goes on.

What do you want to do with Murray ?

Let him play, or sit in the press box and see what next years free agent crop is like. Let the kids play. I don't see a problem with just biting the bullet here. It seems the Bruins "have" to sign Hossa this summer or all is ruined! But the fact remains free agents are available every year. I know Hossa has friends in Boston, but perhaps he plays worse when he is secure and comfortable. PC was with the Sens when they drafted him, but also with the Sens when they traded him for Heatley, so its to get a read on what he thinks of Hossa.

Murray is an albatross so either trade him or demote him. The last few years he has been useless.
