An arbitrator has ruled that the Boston Bruins were within their rights when they bought out Glen Murray's contract following the 2007-08 season.
Murray claimed that he was suffering from an ankle injury sustained during the 2008-08 campaign when he was bought out. He felt that this made him ineligible to be bought out, but the arbitrator ruled that Murray was too late in receiving a second medical opinion. The Bruins still had to pay Murray $1.383 million in 2008-09 and will owe him the same amount next season. Fri, Jun 19, 2009 08:17:00 AM

Glen Murray claims that the Boston Bruins did not have the right to buyout his contract.

The Bruins bought out his contract his contract on July 26th, saving the team $1.38 million of cap space this season. However, Murray says he was still suffering from an ankle injury sustained during the 2007-08 campaign when he was bought out. In that scenario, Murray was not eligible to be bought out and the team would owe him the $4.1 million he would have made this season. Murray is scheduled to undergo an ankle surgery on November 11th, but he reportedly told teams he was healthy and able to play this season. Bruins GM Peter Chiarelli said the team followed the NHL rules and he doesn't think there's going to be an issue. Murray will probably file a grievance with the NHLPA.

The Boston Bruins have officially bought out the contract of Glen Murray.

The 35-year-old Murray had 17 goals and 30 points last season, a big drop from the 28 goals and 45 points in 59 games the previous season. "He’s a good organization guy; he served us very well," GM Peter Chiarelli said in a conference call. "There comes a time in this system when you have to make decisions based on cap flexibility vs. the state of the players, and this is one of those instances." Murray should catch on with another team, but don't expect much more than 20 goals and 40 points next year from the veteran.

Glen Murray will be bought out after clearing the waiver wire, according to a report.

The team has 48 hours to execute the buyout of Murray's contract, which has one year remaining at $4.15 million. The veteran power forward had 17 goals and 30 points in 63 games last season and is clearly in the sunset of his career. If he is bought out, he will be an unrestricted free agent, able to sign with any team.

Glen Murray has been placed on waivers by the Boston Bruins on Wednesday.

Murray still has one year remaining on his contract at $4.15 million. If he clears waivers, the Bruins can either buy him out, trade him, retain him on the big league roster, or send him to the minors so that his salary doesn't count against the cap.

If Dennis Wideman re-signs with the Bruins for approixamtely $3 million per season, the team will be very close to the cap and will likely buy out forward Glen Murray.

Murray is under contract for two more years at $4.15 million per season. Including a Wideman re-signing, the Bruins would be over the cap by about $1 million. If that should take place look for the team to buy out Murray at $1.45 million per season.

Glen Murray was not bought out by Monday's deadline.

However, the Bruins can re-explore their buyout options for 48 hours after an arbitration settlement. Defenseman Dennis Wideman has elected for arbitration, but could be signed to a contract anytime prior to the arbitration hearing, which isn't scheduled yet. The Bruins will likely use that window to evaluate their salary structure, meaning that Murray could very well be bought out sometime in late July or early August.

The Bruins ares still exploring all options available with Glen Murray.

GM Peter Chiarelli is rumored to be actively shopping the veteran winger, possibly in a package with teammate P.J. Axelsson, in a trade to free up some cap space. The Bruins have until June 30 to buy Murray out, which will cost them $1.38 million over the next two years. Stay tuned.

Glen Murray's possible departure from the Bruins keeps coming up in the rumor mill.

The Ottawa Sun has reportedly said that the Senators are interested in acquiring the veteran forward. "I know everyone keeps asking about Glen Murray and I can’t state it enough. Glen has been a tremendous Bruin and still is a tremendous Bruin," general manager Peter Chiarelli said. "He had a frustrating year last year and he’d be the first to admit it, but the fact of the matter is, he’s a shooter, first and foremost, and you can’t go out and get guys who can shoot the puck like him. But he realizes he has to play better. It’s (buyout) a tool that we have and I have to consider it when I look at all my options in team-building."

Glen Murray may be bought out by the Bruins this summer.

Murray is coming off a terrible season, where he tallied just 17 goals in 63 contests. He did have his share of injuries, but the Bruins may decide it is time to part ways with the veteran winger in favor of the young and eager talent they have waiting in the weeds. "I don't really have a comment," said general manager Peter Chiarelli. "We have that option with all of our players, and in the [salary] cap world, it's something you sometimes must consider ... Glen had a tough year, but he meant a lot to our room. He's a goal scorer who didn't score, but he wasn't without his chances, and those chances are a positive." Stay tuned.

Glen Murray recently underwent surgery to remove scar tissue from his ankle.

Glen Murray left Monday's game with a rib injury and did not return.

Murray will have plenty of time to heal up now that the Bruins have been eliminated. It is believed that the power-forward broke or cracked a few ribs.

Glen Murray is pointless in the post-season thus far.

Stop us if we sound like a broken record as the Bruins have shown minimal offense against the Canadiens in four games. In, Boston has only five goals in those four games, leaving most players without a point. If the Bruins do not solve goalie Carey Price in game five, they will be playing golf by the weekend.

Glen Murray was dropped to the third line on Saturday.

The veteran hasn't scored a goal in the past 11 games. Murray was also dropped from the top power-play unit in favor of Chuck Kobasew. Unfortunately, Murray is now playing with two other ice-cold players: P.J. Axelsson and Glen Metropolit.

Glen Murray is pointless in his past nine games.

The Bruins as a team have scored only 12 times during that stretch. Boston needs Murray to break out of his slump if they want to secure a spot in the playoffs.
