Glen Murray On Waivers

Glen Murray is on WAIVERS which means we could pick him up for nothing more than half of his salary...He is a perfect fit for Nashville to play along side of Arnott and Dumont

$2.075M for a top 5 forward....for the love Poile can you get this done!!!

I think he is going to be bought out. I would suspect we have a lot of interest in bringing him in, and I would say we have as good of a chance as anyone in signing him.

Umm...wait a second...

First, a player is only available for half his salary on RE-ENTRY waivers. Meaning he has already cleared waivers and is being recalled to the active roster (thereby exposing him a 2nd time).

Second, Murray is on unconditional waivers - which is the first step for a buyout. If Murray clears, the Bruins owe him a buyout amount and have no further rights to him. Therefore, we either claim him at $4 million or he becomes an unrestricted free agent to be bargained with.

As has been said above, I suspect that we would have a good a shot as any to get Glen Murray as a free agent as we should have the money needed (probably $2-2.5 million) and not one, but two spots open in the top-six to get him good ice time.

I was too lazy to type all this out, but SLake is exactly right.

you are right...I jumped the gun. But, we have seen in this years market guys are being bought out and then going to the highest bidder. Is it worth the security to pick him up even with his $4M salary? It is only one year and then we don't risk losing him to another bidder?

No thanks. Murray is old, slow, and very much injury-prone.

If he was a top 5 forward, he'd be suiting up for the B's this fall.

True, but we also need at least 1 top 6 winger, arguably two. There isn't much left unless we make a trade.

I agree, but I would much, MUCH rather go with Jones than Murray on the second line.

That's asking a lot to have two rookies (Hornqvist and JOnes) serve as top 6 forwards. Murray is a decent pickup that would contribute as many, if not more, goals than any other prospect in the system.

As for that, I have no idea how good Jones is at this point. He sounds like an all around guy that could slot in on the third line even if we did bring in Murray. I suspect Hornqvist and Jones could both bounce around as 2nd/3rd line wingers all season long (assuming they made the team). You still have to think that a guy like Murray would add a vet, scoring, size, and fill a need.....

I'll go on record as liking to see Murrray picked up if the price is right-- I think he could add value to the Preds, but not at 4M.

At $4M though? I'll take my chances with Jones and Hörnqvist on the second line.

it is $4M for one season with a team that has the money to make a one year mistake. We traded Mason a $3M player for a draft pick, Zids for Jones and a draft pick and Sullivan likely doesn't count against the cap for $3.2M that is over $9M off the books. Money is not a problem, but putting all our faith in 2 young kids is too big of a gamble

Put me in the "no" category. I guess there is some price at which I wouldn't complain but in general I'd rather take the potential upside/lumps that go with other alternatives.

I just have trouble seeing him resurrecting the glory days (which are padded anyway), though will admit that having someone that would pull the trigger at every opportunity could work well with Legwand.

Right now we need Sullivan's contract to count toward the cap just to make the floor.


How much we get back from insurance policies nobody around here really knows so whether he is "on the books" or not is up for debate.

Puck on stick=shot wouldn't hurt on this team right now.

I know, I know. I admit that but still can't get the least bit excited over the thought of adding GM. Can't Hornqvist shoot every time he gets it instead? Then park Jones in front of the net, park Pihlstrom on top of someone, trade for someone, sign somebody... from somewhere... a Swede, a Finn, a Serbian, a Samoan... something.

I have this nagging fear that I'll read this again in someones signature but I think I'd rather see Rich Peverly in our top 6.

Man, you know we are hurting when our fans want us to give Ryan Jones a shot.

Better Jones than Peverley... Rich has peaked. Jones has not.

That won't happen until someone suggests we bring back Abid or Orszagh.
