Who gives a **** what websites say, the definition of a 7th defensmen isn't a guy who plays (In all situations) more than the 6th defensemen. And that's what Murphy did, from the start of the game untill the end.
This is one of the few times I will agree. I feel Murphy can eventually evolve into a role like Subban did. I don't know why you take offense to Murphy being a 7th dman, I am just stating it in terms of pairings, not in terms that he is the worst dman of all of them. Murphy can usually play his game effectively with every dman in this roster because of his puck possession style, that's why I see him being the 7th dman.
