DGM is all about inspiration. This week was difficult and I was struggling for a clear vision. I reviewed several prospects for todays post, including Thomas McCullom (ECHL to NHL in 1 week), and a hockey hall of fame post, before deciding upon Mike Murphy.
Murphy is a Hurricanes prospect that plays for the teams AHL affiliate, the Charlotte Checkers. Prior to being injured Mike was posting some pretty solid stats and while those are titillating in their own way, Murphy gets the nod for much much more.
Murphy's qualifications for DGM:
1. Yes, he is more than a pretty face and awesome flow.
2. @MichaelMurphy31 is great about interacting with fans, he even lets the broads attempt to wheel him on twitter.
Murphy's Mail Bag began last season when the team resided in Albany, NY. This year we have the added pleasure of Michal Jordan.
Quick flashback. We all should have known this was coming. Rocking that shade of yellow is a skill all on its own.
5. Murphy is the Checkers "Man of the Year" for his continued work with Checkers charities and promotion of good causes.
What can I say? He's handsome, funny, charitable and likes kids. Sounds like a pretty damn good DGM to me!
