At the 5th spot, give me Ryan Murphy. Great skater, passer, extremely smart, and still growing. Absolute bullet from the point.
The reason our offense struggled so much at times, was plain ol' lousy passing. Forwards were guilty of it, but the D was worse.
Murphy is a guy who can lug it and set things up, like a great point guard in basketball, or, he'll make the beautiful first pass to put the offensive engine in high gear.
Murphy is - or soon will be - better than Subban at this art.
It is painful to watch our small forwards coasting through the neutral zone, wondering what's up, what the hell can be accomplished. Opponents coasting backwards, straddling the blueline, forcing our small club to give it up, with a dump-in.
They can't be at their best under those circumstances.
Our powerplay, with Subban and Murphy at the points, would be a total nightmare for opponents.
