So what that Reinhart had a goal? Means he scored a goal. It's great but it doesn't mean he was better. Same with the stats you brought up in your last. Are you going to bring up anything besides that?
Overall, both offensively and defensively, Murphy was Canada's best defensemen, and since no forwards stood out, he was Canada's best player.
And no he didn't start as 7th, I really don't know what you're talking about. Generally the 7th defensemen play far more than the 6th defensemen, on not only powerplay but even strength as well.
1. I think you mean credibility.
2. Did you watch the game? Because according to you, there apparently wasn't one thing Murphy did wrong in that game. And if that was true, I would have expected a bit more offense seeing that you have built him up as this incredible offensive threat that doesn't show up on the stats sheet because apparently stats aren't important. I dunno about you but I'd prefer atleast one point. We prolly would have atleast tied the game if Murphy could have been on the stats sheet once.
3. Murphy is the player of the game of the losing team. If you want to rejoice in that go ahead, but I certainly hope that's not the best he can offer at the international level.
4. I don't understand what you're saying in you're last statement. Are you saying that Murphy was the 7th because he played more, or that he wasn't the 7th and didn't play more? Anyway, he started out as the 7th dman, I didn't say he was the seventh dman for the whole time. Mark Masters watched the team Canada practices in Finland and showed the practice lines to TSN. That's why they had Murphy as the 7th dman.
