Honestly, the only folks who seem to be defending Murphy are either a]Kitchener Ranger fans or b]Carolina Hurricanes fans. I don't see many people who don't fit into one of those two categories saying anything other than Murphy was bad for the majority of the tournament.

At this point, I don't even fault Murphy. It's up to the coach to realize that a player is playing bad and not play him. Instead, Spott just seemed to play Murphy more and more. I honestly think this is one situation where a coach got completely blinded for his own player. If the coach was from anywhere other than Kitchener, I don't think Murphy makes the team. And even if he somehow did make the team as a PP specialist, I don't think he'd be played near as much as he was.
