He'll probably make it because his coach is coaching but I dont think he should
Not Canadian, but for what it is worth I think taking Murphy makes a lot of sense from the larger ice standpoint. His skating ability will be a big thing on that ice surface. I doubt Ouellet doesn't make the team. He always impresses coaches quickly and earns more ice time. He plays a more even game than a lot of the guys being talked about here. He can play a couple different roles and it makes bringing him an easier decision. Almost every year from this point in a couple players drop due to injury. So this back and forth might take care of itself, but I really doubt and not just because I am a Wings fan that they leave XO at home.
