Former Ottawa Senators GM Bryan Murray passes away at age 74

Former Ottawa Senators GM Bryan Murray passes away at age 74

Former Detroit Red Wings general manager and head coach Bryan Murray has passed away from cancer at the age of 74.

Murray coached for 18 seasons, spending time with the Capitals, Red Wings, Panthers and Ducks.

In that 1979-80 season, the Pats finished with a record of 47-24-1 behind players like Doug Wickenheiser, Darren Veitch and Mike Blaisdell. The move did not work as Cornwall won the Memorial Cup the next day.

Murray was general manager of the Detroit Red Wings (1990-94), Florida Panthers (1994-98), Anaheim Ducks (2002-04) and Ottawa Senators (2007-16), and coached the Washington Capitals (1981-90), Red Wings (1990-93), Panthers (1997-98), Ducks (2001-02) and Senators (2005-08). "He won 620 games as an National Hockey League head coach and led three teams to the Stanley Cup Final, including 2003, when he served as the architect of our unbelievable run".

They open their first ever Premier League campaign by hosting Manchester City on Saturday. "We are going to play both systems". With more money available, manager Chris Hughton will have the tools at his disposal to give it a real go this season.

He was also behind the bench of the Senators when they were defeated by Anaheim in 2007. While his warmth and dry sense of humor were always evident, they were accompanied by the fiery competitiveness and determination that were his trademarks.

"To get right to the very bottom of Bryan, you have to go back to his roots", Nashville Predators' GM David Poile, a close friend who first met Murray in Washington in 1980, told Postmedia in March, 2015 before he was honoured by the NHL GM's at their annual meeting in Boca Raton. But, first and foremost, he's a teacher. He knows how to communicate with them. As we mourn Bryan's passing, we celebrate his many contributions to the game - as well as his courage.

"Some that don't know him would say he's a little sarcastic from time to time".

Sens players also took to Twitter after learning the news.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average rose 22 points, or 0.1%, to 21,867, while the S&P 500 was up 3 points to 2,440, a rise of 0.1%. Computer hardware stocks rebounded following recent weakness, with the NYSE Arca Computer Hardware Index climbing by 1.4%.

"To finish my career in Ottawa and to receive this recognition, is certainly another highlight", said Murray, who listed his trip to the final with the Senators and the reaction of the city among his most memorable moments.

The Capitals had not been to the playoffs in their first eight years of existence before making seven consecutive postseason trips under Murray.

In November of 2014, Murray revealed he had Stage 4 colon cancer, and that the disease had spread to his lungs and liver. There was no hope for a cure, only to prolong his life for as long as comfortably possible via chemotherapy.

Bryan is survived by his wife, Geri, his two daughters, Heide and Brittany, his grandchildren, family, friends, colleagues and students.
