Glen Murray Injury Claim
Glen Murray filed a grievance against the Bruins claiming they bought him out while he was injured, which is not allowed. The Bruins have a cap hit of 1.383 million on him over the next two seasons. Since Murray's career is more than likely done, him winning the grievance is a win win for all.
The Bruins take Murray cap hit back, and place him on the LTIR, and thus shave off the 1.383 million cap hit for this and next year, freeing up some space. Jeremy Jacobs does not have to pay Murray, but insurance will, so he saves money. Murray gets all of his 4.15 million, not the 2.7ish he was going to get. This extra money could be used to sign a guy like Shanahan or saved to acquire a guy at the deadline.
