Kallur and Murphy both got 36% PK time for their teams. Kallur's teams enjoyed considerably more PK success than Murphy's teams, but I'm pretty sure teammates had a lot to do with that. Also, Murphy did it for over 2X as many NHL games. Your guess is as good as mine who the better "all-time" penalty killer is.

also, I would not use the same quote to justify Kallur having an advantage both in 3rd line comparisons (ES) and SH play, as they are separate things. If he's a better penalty killer, then that is all that says, it doesn't necessarily mean he was better defensively, although it could be part of the picture.
