Ryan Murphy is forever cursed to live and die in a market that doesn't even deserve a team and will never amount to anything because of it. He's also bad because he single handidly caused Canada to lose to two better teams.

If only he were lucky enough to be born in Ohio, Texas or Nebraska.
I am a big fan of Murphy. But at this point you would not get Klefbom for him. Before he was hurt Klefbom was playing lights out in the SEL. His stock has risen not because he is an Oiler prospect but rather because of how he has played. The big factor here being that his game is much more likely to transfer to the next level.

Murphy is exceptionally talented. And while he played great in the latter half of last year and in the playoffs, he has struggled this year. The WJHC's exaggerated the issues he has to deal with in transitioning to the NHL. But there is no question that at this point he looks a lot further away from playing in the league than does Klefbom.
