Glad to here he is at least getting a look, and with Montreal!
Pretty much this. His vision is poor and he's prone to making bad decisions with and without the puck. He's strong and mobile - those are the two compliments I'll lend to Murphy. I'm certainly going to keep an open-mind when watching him next season but I am not as surprised as you are that he didn't get drafted. Matter-of-fact, I'm more surprised that Weegar went as late as he did.
