Out of the defensemen who will play for Canada, Spott by far knows Murphy best and whether you agree with it or not, coaches role with the guys they're most familiar with. They don't mitigate their impact to appese people on the internet.
He will not play short handed thats for sure. He'll probably get some solid even strength time and play a tonne on the PP. He didnt get played in all situations in the Canada Russia series this summer and hes a turnover machine.
With a 1 goal lead in the final minute of play if Spott roles with the guys he familiar with, Canada will be going home without a gold just like the last few years and Spott wont be coaching again.
Ryan Ellis hardly played even in his fourth year except in more offensive roles, I think itll be the same for Murphy
