Regarding the proposed benching of Murphy, it won't happen. This is not a leauge where all players are treated the same and get the same treatment when they make mistakes. It's major junior hockey, and it's arguably the top developmental league in the world. Someone as good as Murphy is going to play big minutes all day long, as they should. Role players are going to have a shorter leash, as they do in any legitimate league. It's the same in the NHL. Dion Phaneuf can turn the puck over all he wants, he's still going to leaned on to play big minutes. If Cody Franson does the same thing, he's going to sit. That's just the reality of the game. The benefits of having a Ryan Murphy play every other shift far outweigh the consequences. For every turnover that results in a chance for the other team, there's several Rangers scoring chances created by Murphy, and that's what makes him great.
