What I liked about Murray most - Murphy is offensive minded d-man and Murray was comfortable playing with him, he's very solid in his own zone for his age. In the 2nd game (Russians won 6:3) Murphy played a lot with Hamilton and Dougie didn't help him a lot defensively - 3 goals were solely on Murphy, one of them was shorthanded. Hamilton's skill set for his size is very impressive though, looks like Boston got their Chara replacement. But I'm not disappointed a bit with Murray pick - he was rock solid and looked older than all the other d-men drafted in 2011-12 (Reinhart, Murphy, Reilly). Also he played better than las December at the WJC I think.
