GARDEN CITY, N.Y. - Bryan Murray didn't accompany the Senators on their road trip Monday.

He's headed in another direction as the NHL's 30 general managers gather Wednesday in Toronto for a one-day meeting to discuss NHL issues, and there will be trade talk on the menu with two weeks to the April 3 deadline.
