Honestly i have no clue. I'm in the same boat as you. He was an absolute rocket before, driving the net and constantly in motion. He seems to be regressing every year. He was flat, standing still, always hesitant, not confident in his plays. He looked like a player that has been told hes good and now expects his natural talent to take him through without actually working. Unless of course hes putting on weight and is losing his mobility. He put the tonugues down on his skates (probably means nothing) but it actually looks like its restricting his foot movements and its simply something a player does to look "cool". Only Chris Pronger really can successfully pull that off and he cut most of the fabric off so he could have full foot mobility. Murphy needs to get his head straight. When i saw him in the steelheads home opener against the Rangers, his skates were not like that.
