Are you sure you're talking about Ryan Murray? He's all around d-man, similar maybe to a guy like Alzner, to describe him as an "offensive defenceman" doesn't ring true. Personally I like his defensive game better than his offensive skills.

Almost no 17 year old defenceman ever score in bunches in the WHL, in fact I wouldn't describe ANY d-man in the entire league as scoring in bunches this year. The top guys are barely over 1 PPG, the top draft eligible Bell has 24 pts in 36 games. No offence intended but to even use that statement while hyping a player from the OHL (a much higher scoring league) is almost laughable.

None of this post is intended as a dig at Ebert, as I've never even seen him play and you're not the only one hyping him.
