  • Murphy back up with Devils

    News: New Jersey recalled defensemen Cory Murphy and Matt Corrente from Lowell of the AHL on Friday. Both played against the Predators, although Corrente skated as a RW on the fourth line.
    Analysis: Murphy has been somewhat of a disappointing player since making his NHL debut in 2007-08. He was a prized overseas import and has offensive talent. He just hasn't produced on a regular basis. Murphy has minimal Fantasy appeal.
  • Eckford up, Murphy down for Devils

    News: The Devils have called up D Tyler Eckford up from the AHL. To make room, D Cory Murphy was sent down.
    Analysis: Eckford, a seventh-round pick from 2007, is off to a great start in his second AHL season with 15 points in 18 games and was named the league's player of the week on Sunday. The 24-year-old isn't much of a prospect, so don't worry about him in Fantasy play just yet. Murphy can also continue to be ignored.

He was claimed off re-entry waivers by the Lightning in January after starting the season with the Panthers. He has limited Fantasy value at this time, but showed improvement after moving to Tampa. Only draft him in super-deep leagues.
  • Murphy out 3-4 weeks

    Analysis: It's a real shame Murphy has to likely miss the rest of the season since he has become a viable Fantasy defenseman after joining the Lightning lineup. It's probably safe to cut Murphy since the Lightning have no reason to rush him back.
  • Murphy still sitting out on Saturday

    News: Tampa Bay D Cory Murphy missed Saturday's game against the Thrashers on Saturday due to a foot injury sustained in Tuesday's game against Toronto, the second game he has missed due to the injury. He remains questionable for Tuesday's game against the Blue Jackets.
    Analysis: Murphy has seen a nice uptick in production this season since moving from Florida to Tampa Bay. He has 15 points in his last 24 games but remains a low-end option. He is an injury risk for the upcoming scoring period and is not a suggested start.

  • Murphy opens up scoring early

    Analysis: Murphy has six points in his last seven games, nearly doubling his points total on the season. Murphy has been a solid pickup for the Lightning since he was claimed off waivers in late January. He has filled a need on the blue line with all the injuries Tampa has sustained, but his offensive production is still a bit sporadic. Continue to view Murphy more as a low-end Fantasy option.
