That's a good thing for Murphy, because if he makes the team I feel it will be based more on reputation than what he has shown thus far. Those 4 D sitting are locks. There are only 3 spots left. There are questions when it comes to Murphy. Do you trust him to take a regular shift on the third pairing? Does this team actually need a PP specialist given some of the other selections? Would TC feel comfortable playing Murphy even more minutes if one of the top 4 gets injured?

I've always liked high risk/high reward defenseman. That's how I like to play myself. However, if his pros do not outweigh his cons, it isn't worth it to risk him being on the team.
