HAHA yessss :laugh:......i know he recently just signed with Sarnia, could he see time in Portland next year?

PhoPhan 08-04-2011 06:50 PM

I guess this seals that whole "He's not going to the NCAA" thing.

hbk 08-04-2011 07:38 PM

Interesting. Maloney's figured out that in order to get to the cap floor having a bunch of rookies making max cap (but little chance of hitting the actual bonus levels) but lower actually salary. Exact opposite of teams like the Devils who are getting rookies to sign for less cap. Murphy has a higher hit than one of the players who was talked to be the first overall pick in the draft in Larsson.

Kaizen 08-05-2011 12:05 PM

I take it you are referring to two or three years down the road when you are referring to getting to the cap floor.

This is another "put it in the bank" signing similar to Gormley last year. Sign the player, develop the player and reap the rewards.

I suppose planning for cap management issues down the line makes sense. Build some flexibility into the system.

Naych_PHX 08-05-2011 03:07 PM

I wonder if there was an issue, or some bickering possibly going on by someone, somewhere that sort of caused DM to do this, to make things official.

I wonder if this was a condition to get Murphy to bypass college...

Naych_PHX 08-05-2011 08:27 PM

Well, yeah I know this bypasses college. But Im just wondering if this contract was to make a statement. Whatever, it pry goes without saying that's what it's for.

ScottsdaleYote 08-06-2011 12:56 AM

What I mean is why now? We could have waited until next year to sign him correct? But in order to convince the Murphy camp to go to the OHL, maybe we promised to sign him this year?

Rabbit 08-06-2011 11:13 AM

Probably to help reach the cap floor.

zz 08-06-2011 11:24 AM

Signing young players early has really worked out for us so far... :sarcasm:

Waiting until after they graduate college didn't work so well, either.

Fine with the signing, gives Connor a little $ up front - probably $92.5k signing bonus this year.

Gives the Yotes flexibility. The contract could slide the next two seasons if Connor doesn't get in 10+ NHL games in a season. Also I assume the team has the flexibility to assign him to the AHL if they decide that would be better for his development instead of sending him to Sarnia.

Man, can you imagine? I'm going into the Air Force this year and my signing bonus for 6 years for my job is 13 grand. I get 6.5 of it uprfront. As a 19 year old I feel lucky.

This kid is 17 and just got over 90 thousand dollars :laugh:

Julie from Hockeybuzz comments on Murphy

"Connor Murphy is really good at hockey. For a big guy (6'3, 200), he is an excellent skater…so fluid and what a slapshot. His goal seemed to find the back of the net before I even saw it leave his stick. I spoke with him after the game and he's loving the pace of the games and while sometimes that causes guys to rush, he realized that he had more time and space that he thought which allowed him to make smarter decisions with the puck."

Already back at it... I'm still not to happy with this signing/drafting.

Tough break for him.

Swat Ultra 08-11-2011 04:07 PM

HAHA what a horrible draft choice, suck for him personally but very retarded to draft a player that can't ever stay healthy and has now a bad knee that will be very hard to get 100% out and a bad back that kept him from playing for 2 years , and hes still a teenager

rt 08-11-2011 04:39 PM

THAT'S IT!!!! FIRE KEITH GRETZKY!!!! FIRE HIM!!!!......oh wait....

R S 08-11-2011 05:00 PM

I can't believe the hate for this kid by you guys. I watched him at the U-18s this spring and he was flat out awesome. Very smart, very skilled, good size, great skater. The only glaring problem is health, but many times that is 100% out of the players hands.

rt 08-11-2011 05:07 PM

Haha. Come on buddy, you've got to admit that's a pretty large part of being a legitimate prospect.

The kid is about to miss four months. This in addition to the injuries he's dealt with the last two years. Flash forward to the end of the year. How many hockey games will this kid have played in the last three years? Seriously. This is not a small issue.
