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.
Even better considering Spott thinks he is worth the risk and is probably his most vocal supporter.
