Bryan Murray Diagnosed with Cancer

I didn't see this already being discussed, if there is one already please delete this one...


Once again, I am having trouble with my paste commands on here but if you go to detnews.com the article is there.


This is sad news, I hope he can beat it! I am having one tonight in honor of the man who help build our Dynasty!



quick little funny story, when he was coach/gm for us, I was pushing wheel chairs at metro and always was on the look out for NHL players traveling.  I ran into Bryan Murray on his way to GM meetings and they were in the middle of a 10-15 game unbeaten streak at the time. A lot of people were starting to recognize him and I jokingly asked him, "Its kind of hard to remain anonymous now-a-days isn't it?"  He laughed and answered yes. He then started asking about what I do at the airport and just being friendly in general.  During our conversation I mentioned that I was going to the game the next night.  He said make sure his assistants coaches do a good job while he was gone. I said no problem! Well they lost.  Oh well.  Now, fast forward a few days later after the meetings and I am at work in my work station and I happen to see him walking through towards baggage claim. He saw me and approached me and asked me what happened and that he thought I was going to take care of things...lol! I told him I submitted some line changes but they wouldn't listen to me!  He had a laugh!  I thought is was so cool that with all the business of the NHL and the thousands of fans he meets, that he actually remembered our conversation and even was down to earth enough to give me a little egg on my face...


Great, great guy and great Hockey mind.  It's just too bad he hasn't been able to win that Cup yet...stay strong Bryan and beat this!

I think its time to stop waiting for this guy to be healthy. He will never be.






World Juniors Tourney Thread

26 December 2013 - 11:53 AM

I didn't see a thread for this years tournament, so I thought I'd make one for all WJ talk.


So far Canada beat Germany 6-2. Mantha had the Hattie and Patterson got the win in goal.


Right now USA is up 2-0 on Czech Republic. I am intrigued by Hudson Fasching, whom I hoped the Wings would have snagged up, but they didn't take him. Instead opted for Pope. Also Steve Santini who the Wingd missed out on.


Always routing for USA, but will be fun watching all our prospects and future NHL stars!
