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.
I don't sugarcoat opinions! HC is fair game and they deserve their share of criticism. I'm no fan of the chief who sits atop that bureaucratic institution and the minions he employs. I'm a fan only of Canadian hockey players. And no I've never worked there nor have I ever sought to work there.... just an observer who doesn't like the things they do on a whole bunch of levels.
