MINNEAPOLIS -- The New York Rangers had super-skilled D-man Ryan Murphy in for testing and an interview last week. I hope he made the most of his time in the Big Apple and caught a couple of shows, because it's unlikely he'll land on Broadway during Friday's first round.
All reports here indicate he will not get past the Boston Bruins at No. 9. Murphy also made a trip to test and interview with the Bruins, and the word is Peter Chiarelli & Co. came away with everything they wanted to see and hear to not only draft him -- as we suggested in our final mock draft -- but also expect him to be in the lineup at 18 years old.
