Great hockey player no doubt about that, but he's far from a top 2 pick. In fact he'll be lucky to crack top 20 in my opinion. He's WAY too light, and he will be afraid when rick nash/iginla/bobby ryan/getzlaf/etc come flying at him.
See Erik Karlsson. The game is changing and theres going to be plenty of GM's who look for the next great puckmover even if he's small and somewhat suspect in his own end. That one game I saw of Murphy was quite impressive. His ability to play with the puck and the poise he did it with was something. If he plays the same way in the OHL that he did against U'17'ers I'd have no issue with taking him with a top 10 pick.
