Glen Murray was released by the Bruins today coming off of a 17 goal season. The Bruins have 48 hours to buy him out, and save $2.7 Mil against the cap. Then he is like Paris Hilton, available to the highest bidder.
Glen Murray may be injury prone, but this is a guy that has 337 goals in a 1009 game career, and last year’s was his least productive season in a decade. Murray might be a decent fit on the Oil – he is a decent pickup for some additional scoring punch.
Given that he is old as sand he might come cheap, or way cheaper than his current $4.15 million remaining on his contract. When the Oil make the playoffs this year – BELIEVE THAT! – a Glen Murray would be a valuable role player with plenty of playoff experience with 22 goals and 42 pts in 94 career games.
He could also teach Andrew Cogliano and Company how to be play with more grit and still pot 40 goals – which Murray as done twice. We could all call him Muzz, which seems to be his nickname according to “people who know Glen Murray’s nickname.”
Glen Murray at $4.15 million a year? Oh hells no.
Glen Murray at $2.3 million a year? Perhaps.
