<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>LoganOllivier</b></div><div>He wouldn't be bottom pair in TO I agree. He'd take Ceci's spot and still not be good enough to be a top pair guy but Babs would make him one anyways. I don't think Murphy sucks, I just don't think he's anything special and certainly not worth half of what you guys keep trying to throw out there. He isn't worth a top 6 forward and a 1st rounder. He's worth maybe a 1st for a really desperate team. But I doubt he will get you that much. As far as the notion that teams will have to overpay because a certain player is important to a team is a joke. Players are worth what they are worth and anyone who pays more is desperate.</div></div>

For the record, you are the only person who ever said a top 6 forward plus a first-rounder.

Also, im confused about what you mean when you say "As far as the notion that teams will have to overpay because a certain player is important to a team is a joke. Players are worth what they are worth and anyone who pays more is desperate."

That perspective does not make any sense to me, In this scenario, I would be inclined to believe that a team would have to overpay to get Murphy because

1. Murphy was playing exceptionally well prior to his injury, and his advanced stats support that claim.
2. Murphy is an RHD DFD, which the Blackhawks dont have many of on the NHL roster, or in the system. If Toronto were to be interested in Murphy, a positional need in Toronto (like Chicago), it would seem to me that they would have to overpay to get Chicago to give up that type of asset.
