I'm not a prospect guru, but I'll try to give you a little help. Murphy has been sent back to Kitchener. I'd expect him to stay there the full season unless all of our RH defenseman get injured. The earliest I'd bet on him playing is next season. Probably a PP only role. Very sheltered minutes at ES. However, the Canes might think it's better to acclimate him to the pro game in the AHL. 2014/2015 I would think it should be a lock for him to make the roster.

For Dumoulin, I'd guess he's one of the first call-ups for Pittsburgh. I'd expect him to come in as a #6, and work his way up the lines. MAYBE by 2014/2015 he could be a #3/4. I generally see that as his upside.

Now, there playing styles are miles apart as I'm sure you know. Murphy the point producer and Dumoulin the defensive minded guy who can chip in offensively sometimes.
