As far as Murphy goes, as long as Spott doesn't have a Don Hay sized crush on his own player I'm sure the team will be fine. The Canadian defence is absolutely loaded this year.
Murray and Couturier are both late birthdays who could wear visors in the tournament when they made it for the first time. Hockey Canada loves cutting the 17-year-olds not the 18-year-olds.
