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.
He did start as the seventh, he played as the seventh dman and PP specialist just like everyone thought he would except you lol.
And what offense did Murphy generate today? He wasnt brutal defensively but he wasnt great by any means and was probably the second worst defensively today (I thought Rielly had a rough go today). But where did he create one chance? He had a few rushes from his own end where he ended up dumping it in or losing it in the corner but nothing that really generated offense. Reinhart on the other hand scored a goal (offense that matters) and was a rock defensively. You always love to point out how great Murphy is offensively but then he doesnt produce, just like today where he was pulling spinoramas to put the puck into the corner. Made him look flashy and offensively talented but it leads to no actual points, just flashy play.
