#2548794 Former Wings coach/GM Bryan Murray has stage 4 cancer

"Most of the important things in the world have been accomplished by people who kept on trying when there seemed to be no hope at all." - Dale Carnegie



Bryan Murray will live his passion until he can no longer do it.  I think that he will work in the NHL up until the day he passes.  I also believe in miracles and hope and pray for one of those today.

I'm a cancer survivor myself. I was fortunate to catch mine early, but it still took 2 surgeries and 2 years out of my life. What Murray is facing is something I can't imagine. I would've vacated my job by now if I was him. But he's a stronger man than me. Goodluck to him and his family.

#2548709 Ranking Wings Players by Draft Order

Weiss - 4th overall :wacko:



I dont see why this is suprising. Weiss was a very good player in juniors, and that skill set did carry over into the NHL. Injuries in your early 30's shouldn't dismiss what you accomplished in your 20's.

Yes, I think DeKeyser going undrafted has a lot to do with him going the college route. College hockey has gotten much more recognition the past few years, largely because of some of the talent that is coming out of the NCAA. Some others that went undrafted from the NCAA in recent years include Ben Lovejoy, Torey Krug, Kevan Miller, Mark Letestu, Trevor Van Riemsdyk, Luke Glendening, Mark Arcobello, Christian Folin, Mike Weaver, Andy Green, Stephen Gionta, Cory Conacher, Cam Talbot, Matt Read, Matt, Irwin, J.T. Brown, Andrej Sustr, Tyler Bozak and Chris Tanev. Others a few years back include Curtis Glencross, Teddy Purcell, Ben Scrivens, Ryan Carter, Rene Bourque, Dan Boyle, Martin St. Louis, Chris Kunitz, Jason Garisson and Jay Beagle. There are going to be more and more of these guys coming from the NCAA and the biggest name out there right now is Kenney Morrison, a guy I think could help out the Wings on the back end...

Should we expect anything else from a man with 'Viking' bloodlines?


We need to remember 1 simple fact.....Scandinavians were the original 'enforcers' of their time.....They just grew tired of pillaging, and wreaking havoc, and by doing so they decided to conform via social well being, education, designing safe automobiles, modern architecture, affordable home goods, and hardware essentials.

Too Funny! I guess the nickname "Demolition Man" takes on a whole new meaning now!


I cannot help but picture all the old episodes of Home Improvement while watching those! He and Tim Allen could give each other a run for the money!

#2548553 Las Vegas rumored to get an expansion team

Posted by vladdy16 on 11 November 2014 - 12:28 PM

What af****** joke.

The NHL can be rumored to suck my ass.

But that's never even been discussed internally *rim shot*, let alone actually considered.


I find it hard to believe anyone is actually surprised by this "announcement."
