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.

Had to see if anyone else caught this, as I just got that deep into it. Harper was literally the only player from the CHL Top Prospect game not drafted, and yet his teammate, Crisp, goes from completely off the radar to 71st overall?!?

Murphy is all tools and no toolbox IMO. Not shocked he didn't get drafted.
