And I obviously disagree. The only thing Bergeron had going for him was speed and a shot (both pretty blistering). He didn't have the hockey sense to take advantage of either.

Murphy actually has the vision and hockey sense (both of which are off the charts) to take advantage of the tool's God/Satan gave him, unlike Bergeron.

The only thing that is remotely comparable is their frame. But we could keep debating this until the end of time (or until Murphy wins a Norris and/or busts spectacularly).

P.S. When you say "watch Murphy play", are you talking about the WJC or his campaign in the OHL?

here's denis shvidki, taken at 12th overall in 1999 (burrows' draft year, same position as ryan murphy) http://www.hockeydb.com/ihdb/stats/p....php?pid=34005

more names: alexandre daigle, jeff heerema, rico fata, daniel tkaczuk
Posting several names that I can't pronounce does not change the blatant overall trend.
