I thought Murphy looked decent against the CIS all-stars today - didn't give away the puck along the boards like he did against UofA. He still had a couple of giveaways in the defensive slot - I guess he is a little like Jovanovski with a high risk profile - but he also had at least one memorable rush wher he created his own scoring chance.

As to your team oriented comment, I get what you're saying on the rush, he seems to have the blinders on a bit (say, like Ballard), but on the powerplay he seems to have good vision and distribute the puck pretty well to teammates.
