Glen Murray, bought out in September, could end up costing the Bruins more than the $2.76 million he's due over the next two years.

According to a TSN report, Murray will soon have a second procedure to repair his ankle, the same ankle for which he had surgery in April.

He and agent Anton Thun claim that his ankle problem is a pre-existing condition, which means that Murray could challenge the buyout – and if successful, receive full salary.

"If Glen is allowed to grieve this, and he were to win, I am not sure how they would deal with the cap consequences," wrote Bruins GM Peter Chiarelli in an e-mail. "I don't think we would get any cap relief."

A call to Thun was not immediately returned.
