I'd try playing in Britan or Germany if I was him

Britain sounds more logical.

Murphy's KHL record ends with 7 games played, 1-5 record, .877 save percentage, and 4.34 goals against. Truly horrific.

Yikes.

In his defense, it has to be really hard for a goalie with his unconventional style to get used to the wider ice. Changing all the angles slightly is a great way to expose a guy who isn't very big and doesn't play a typical butterfly.

That said, he blew it.

His first game he allowed 1 goal on 40 shots. His bad stats are mostly from that one game against Metallurg where it was just a shooting frenzy; Malkin, Gonchar, Kulemin, Kazionov were just all over Spartak's defense, it really wasn't Murphy's fault. They got outshot 40-26 that game.

It's definitely disappointing, he is playing at an almost NHL level, the most challenged he has been since he began his career. But he still could have definitely done better.

I just hope he signs somewhere quickly, and he can put his bad stint behind him.

Trying to find something to confirm a rumour that an ECHL Team (an Independent with no NHL or AHL) has offered him a PTO.

Hmmm, yeah I did a quick search but found nothing. If it is true, I'd be mildly disappointed, as, for now at least, I think he would be better off playing overseas.

But I'd still be happy that he'd be playing. I'll definitely be checking daily for any confirmations, or any signing in general.

Haven't heard anything lately. He's basically dead to most of us now.
