Murphy's defense is fairly solid at the OHL level, but obviously he still has a lot of work to do as the opposing talent gets better. He's a good player to hold if you can afford to, as he definitely has the talent to be a big scorer on defense but if you need the spot or you can get a good return on him by all means shuttle him off. Enticing upside but pretty longshot of actually hitting it or even making the NHL in a substantial way.
If you can swap him for Kuznetsov, I'd probably do it.
