thanks for the lead

Glen Murray was bought out on the 25th of July. The Bruins had one arb case - Wideman and that was resolved prior to the hearing. A deal was struck on the 22nd.

It looks like the Bruins had an opportunity to buy someone out in July and I think the normal buy-out period ends July 1. Having an arb case must give you the flexibility to do a buy out in July.
