yeah I just heard that to but on the radio. The Team 1200. He is my cousin and I think its a bad move for the Sens. Bryan has never won anything or made an organization better ass a coach.

Brutal, brutal move. Bryan Murray is a worse coach than he is a GM...and that's saying a lot!

What Muckler sees is a coach/GM who got 2 teams to the finals fairly soon after taking over those teams.

That is why he got the job, and that is all Muckler wanted.

Hmmm won a Jack Adams in his 3rd year...was a big reason why the Ducks made their run last year.

I don't think he's bad...it's just a real shocker and doesn't make much sense considering he hasn't coached in a long time. If Muckler chose him over 'Q', Acton or Francis...he's obviously got to be pretty good.

Ahem...

1) He has never coached a team to the Stanley Cup finals, and has not coached a team past the first round since 1992.

2) He was not the GM that took Florida to the Stanley Cup Finals in 1996. He was hired in 2000.

He was also a big reason why the Ducks went into the tank this year.

Also...his Jack Adams was back in 1984! Jesus, you could justify Muckler hiring Glen Sather with a resume like that!

I also like how he blasted Paul Kariya's lack of loyalty last summer, and now is running out on the Anaheim organization whose biggest problems originate with *him*. Real classy, Bryan.

I like him as a GM but not a coach, when he coached hockey was played different than it is now.

Yes he was

August 1, 1994
Bryan Murray is named general manager of the Panthers.
April 14, 1996
The Panthers conclude the 1995-96 season with 92 points (41-31-10) and a fourth-place finish in the Eastern Conference. The team qualifies for the Stanley Cup Playoffs for the first time and proceeds to defeat the Boston Bruins, Philadelphia Flyers and Pittsburgh Penguins, before losing to the Colorado Avalanche in the Stanley Cup Final.

Bryan Murray has accomplished almost as much as I have as a head coach. Why he would take this job and step away as a GM is beyond me.

I wouldn't sell Murray short as a coach. He took over a moribund (10-cent word ) Washington franchise in '82 and turned them into a perennially competitive team, albeit one that could never get over the hump. Granted, that was a long time ago.

Regardless, not good news for Anaheim, IMO, as he resurrected that franchise virtually overnight from bottom feeders to Cup Finalists, and importantly has cultivated a promising young pipeline of prospects.

Wow, can't say I heard Murray's name in any rumors. Interesting that he would step away from the GM position and return to coaching...the article speculates his love for coaching and the uncertain future of the Ducks.

My first impression of Murray as a coach is his similarity to Martin. I remember his Washington teams being strong defensively, with a great core of d-men, but never reaching their potential in the playoffs. Also, Murray is not known as a real disciplinarian (definately on the other end of the specturm from Keenan), more of a player's coach.

Very proven hockey guy who is probably better known as a GM than a coach. I think this will be a highly debated hire. IMO most Ottawa fans were looking for a bigger name (Quenneville, Robinson, etc)

I think he is a good hockey guy. I do question the hire simply because of solid candidates being available right now and more possibly relatively soon.

Maybe the Sens are not especially confident that Quenneville is 100% healthy.

Murray is known as a really classy, loyal guy. He is way more emotional than idiot-Jacques and could possibly carry them farther. He has bridged the gap pretty elegantly between "old school hockey" and the more technical game of today.

I do not really understand why he is making the move back to coaching but he is a huge asset for the Senators because he is an all-around guy with lots of experience, and experience in many functions.

He can even step up and replace Muckler if need be later.

I thought Quenneville was the ideal candidate for the job, obviuously the Sens did not think so.

Murray is a great GM, but he's not a very good coach. This is a strange move and I think it completely reeks of Disney.

Maybe Disney wants to bring Kariya back and Murray didn't want him, it's a strange move that I really don't understand. It probably also means Mike Babcock is on the hotseat since Murray handpicked him after he went from coach to GM.

I can't really complain about Murray, he did alot of great things here in Anaheim, he drafted pretty well, he took the risk of trying to make last years team better by replacing Kariya with Fedorov(most would agree Fedorov is better) the real question is who replaces him?Dudley?Burke?Chuck Fletcher?
