I'm okay with this- so long as Murray sticks to his commitment of youth, and hires a proven coach who can get the most out of the players.

I think Murray will be at his best in rebuilding, he just isn't the guy that will take the team over the top. Murray to build the foundation then transition to a longer term (hopefully) solution.

It's a lot easier when you get to trade good assets. Not the ones left over by Muckler.

The mandate is different now.

You don't know this.

It's called earning your ice time, I have no problem with that. Why does some kid who was literally just signed out of the NCAA deserve to be handed ice time? rebuilding or not.

There was time, kids always started on the 3rd of 4th line.

Have to make an impression to earn your ice time.

If the Vets hate him so much, why do Spezza and Neil look like different players now? Alfie has been injured since this team has changed, so we can't comment. The atmosphere around the team is clearly different now then it was.

I like it. He's a proven builder and we're rebuilding. Makes sense.

I hope he demanded a "no pressure to hire aging veterans" clause

A 68 yr old signed for 3 more years....

I can't imagine the gong show this is going to be by the time he leaves. Not like there's been any pressure to win. And every time we miss the playoffs he can point to the bad prospect pool and blame Muckler.

Proven where? Not Detroit or Florida. You can make a case for Anaheim, but it's not like they won anything while he was there.

Bwahahaha

Luvs it

Not saying he hasn't made mistakes but he built a solid scouting/drafting dept. The key to contention sustainability.

Another Gm just would have reaped the fruits of his labour and claimed all the credit a la Burke in Anaheim.

At least it ain't that bloody fool P Macgwire

Good news day indeed!

Atleast our prospect pool will be better in 4 years.

I'm kinda mute on the HC position, if next year is a development year for youngsters then I say keep Cory for another year and let it play out.

Yeah...errrr.....not entirely happy about this, I would've been happier if he become VP or President or something instead.

Murray's mediocre managing gets rewarded

I have never been a Murray hater or anything but this is just a terrible decision.

We needed a fresh start so badly, and were provided a very good opportunity to do so.

Who cares how old he is, it's irrelevant. He has great feel for the game and with age comes knowledge and experience. He is the best man for the job, glad we have him signed long term.

I'm really not sure what to make of this. I guess he has built some solid teams up from a rebuild, so that makes me like it, but then on the other hand i've seen his poor coaching choices over the last few years, questionable trades (excluding this years good deadline deals) and overpaying in resigning our players. He has been good at the drafting and signing college free agents, so my hope is that continues and with a different philosophy for the team now will improve his decision making in regards to trading, re-signing and coaching decisions. But **** i'll be pissed if i ever see Clouston behind the bench!

Maybe you've missed the last month or so, I would say the fresh start has already begun. There is already a youth movement in effect. Replacing the GM does signify a fresh start, the players are the ones who have to make the difference. Murray 's job is to put the right players in position, he is already doing that.

Good news. I'm a fan of Murray. Excellent drafter, and his trades are getting better (see Anderson).

Cory "I won't keep a line together for more than 2 consecutive shifts" Clouston must go though.

Jesus, what a crap ass year for me. The two saving graces for this God-awful season were a top three pick and the firing (or letting go) of Bryan Murray.

I'm ok with this. Murray has shown he's excellent at the draft table and as a rebuilding team that's what we need. Now if he could just sign Kirk Muller.
