I'm not sure if size or Murphys defensive play has anything to do with him not making the team. Granted at the start of last season his defensive play was sorely lacking but from the midseason on his defensive play was drastically improved to the point that he was very dependable in his own end. His play in the OHL playoffs is proof enough.
IMHO....the reason he didn't make the team was because 13 out of 22 roster spots was from the OHL and HC wanted to try to equalize things as much as possible.
