From the Kitchener Rangers web site
Captain Ryan Murphy recorded eight points as the Rangers won three games in three days over the weekend. The Carolina Hurricanes prospect Ryan Murphy scored his first two goals of the year and set up six more.
Looks like Murphy is off to a good start in the OHL this season. I sure would like to see him get a shot at the big club this season. If there is a season.
Glad to see Murphy doing well, but he's at the point in his development where his game isn't being served by spending another year at the kids table...another casualty of the lockout.
That is the truth.
So Ryan Murphy makes the WJC roster, but isn't even put on the ice for a 5 on 3 PP. Hmm, that's a little disheartening. Makes you wonder.....
I might say let Murphy just finish this season in Kitchener, gain whatever experience he can and learn some lessons you can only learn with a 'C' on your jersey, then watch him tear it up in camp next year. Or he could come to camp and blow everyone away like Skinner did his rookie year. As long as he fulfills some of his potential.
Also, can Murphy even play this season if he's already started it in the OHL? Or does a lockout allow players still eligible for juniors to play in juniors until the lockout is over then they get their traditional 9-game tester to determine if they're staying or not?
