Now he watches the Washington Capitals on television. His wife goes to a Capital game and he stays home. He's taken up light jogging. He works on his car. He's thinking about painting his house. "I've got plenty of time," said Bryan Murray, sipping morning coffee in his living room.

If there was a way for Kings Coach Terry Murray to slip completely under the radar — perhaps looking for a subterranean route? — you can be sure he would try to find it. A line buried in the press notes about his 1,000th game behind the bench would probably suit him just fine. Not an entire page of notes, questions from the media and public acknowledgment before Saturday's puck drop against the Minnesota Wild. Call him refreshingly old school, light on ego and heavy on results.

Bryan Murray watched the Mighty Ducks play a late-season game against Toronto and came away with an impression of a team with potential. If that's true, that potential now rests in his hands. Murray was hired as the Ducks' coach Friday, taking over a team that scraped bottom last season, finishing last in the Western Conference. He signed a multiyear deal, terms of which were not released.

A number of thoughts crossed Bryan Murray's mind as the Ottawa Senators' bus pulled up to the Honda Center on Sunday afternoon. Three years had passed since Murray left the Ducks' organization to coach the Senators and, by a quirk in NHL scheduling, this was his first time back in Anaheim.

Bryan Murray, Detroit Red Wing coach, was suspended 10 games for allowing players to leave the penalty box to join a fight. The suspension is usually five games, but Murray's was doubled because he also violated the rule last season. The NHL might change the rule because coaches can't restrain players from across the ice.

Bryan Murray, who had the longest tenure of any current coach in the NHL, was fired Monday by the Washington Capitals and replaced by his brother, Terry Murray. Capital General Manager David Poile said there was a long pause on the telephone when he offered the job to Terry Murray. "I'm sure he was hoping for a better time or better circumstances for when he was going to get the job," Poile said.

Bryan Murray, coach of the Norris Division-leading Detroit Red Wings, was suspended for five games Monday by the NHL for failing to control a player. Murray was punished because one of his players, defenseman Yves Racine, left the penalty box to continue an altercation in the Wings' 5-5 tie with the New York Rangers Sunday. Racine was suspended without pay for 10 games.

Bryan Murray didn't know what would happen if he stayed as general manager of the Mighty Ducks, whether he'd be free to continue the course that had carried them to within a victory of winning the Stanley Cup in 2003 or whether he'd have to compromise his vision. But he knew this much: His father Clarence was ill and his mother Rhoda was trying to cope far away, near Ottawa, and he felt a tug to be near them. He didn't plan to bail out on the Ducks.

The pile of bodies behind the net at game's end Friday might as well have carried a sign: Sean Avery was here. Although a game misconduct and unsportsmanlike penalty with 8:18 left meant that Avery was not around to see the final minutes of the Kings' 5-1 loss to Ottawa -- he was on the bus outside the Corel Center when the game ended -- he was again at the center of chaos.

Just when it seemed the folks at Disney had gotten serious about this hockey thing, when they got a real general manager in Bryan Murray and let him build a team that reached the Stanley Cup finals -- and then let him pad the payroll the next season to remain competitive -- they've once again turned the Mighty Ducks into Disney's California Misadventure.

Bryan Murray, general manager of the Mighty Ducks, will resign today to become the coach of the Ottawa Senators. He cites family reasons for his return to coaching, but a hockey source familiar with the situation said a large part of the decision has to do with Murray's frustration over the desire by officials at Walt Disney Co., which owns the Ducks, to cut the team's payroll. Duck officials declined to comment, but the source said Ottawa would announce Murray's hiring today.

Bryan Murray, the Mighty Ducks' general manager, said he would wait a few days while the Mike Comrie situation plays out in Edmonton. The Ducks have worked out a trade for Comrie, a 23-year-old forward, but it's is on hold. Edmonton General Manager Kevin Lowe is demanding an unprecedented $2.5-million payment from Comrie before agreeing to the trade. "It's disappointing," said Murray, who has said the Ducks will not get involved in the squabble. "But there is not much we can do.

Man saves team. Man's team saves his hometown. If not for the fact that the upstart Mighty Ducks had reached the second round of the Stanley Cup playoffs and were locked in a five-overtime marathon against the Dallas Stars on the night of April 24, one Canadian town might no longer exist. When the fourth-longest game in NHL history ended at about 1:30 a.m.

The Detroit Red Wings fired Jacques Demers as coach Friday and hired former Washington Capital coach Bryan Murray to be both coach and general manager. Murray, 47, had guided the Capitals to the playoffs in seven of his nine full seasons, but his team never advanced past the second round. He was fired and replaced by his younger brother, Terry, in January.

If a hockey team improves dramatically from one season to the next but plays in a city west of Toronto and ends its games when Eastern-based TV stations are showing infomercials for miracle knives, does anybody hear it? Bryan Murray, general manager of the Mighty Ducks, knows word hasn't filtered through the NHL that his team has shed the trappings of failure. "Our time zone doesn't help," he said. "Even some of our friends who live in the East aren't able to stay up and watch our team play.
