NHL20 Talk: Slater or Murphy?

Ever since quarantine has begun, two things have been off the charts; Pornhub and the PS4 / Xbox servers.


352-3527309_hypebart2-line-graph-graph-increase.pngThis is exactly what happens when you aren’t allowed to leave your home and you have an unhealthy obsession with hockey. Teams all across the globe have joined the EASHL to prove that they have what it takes to be considered the best hockey team in the world. Whether it be 3v3 or 6v6, teams go to war. Now depending on whether you’re at your home barn or on the road, you are dealt with the underlying issue of playing with a CPU. The CPUs role is to play quality hockey without sticking out too much, but like myself and thousands of highly competitive people, we just end up screaming at our TVs like the CPU has a brain, a mind or a soul. SO my question for you, is that if it were game 7, would you rather have Andy Slater or Jerome Murphy playing defense?

Andy Slater


Slater is the river boat gambler as Biz would say. You can find Slater getting up ice way more than he’s supposed to, getting caught in the offensive zone, and struggle to contain opposing forwards. Slater, however, can put the puck in the back of the net, can score occasionally on penalty shots, and has the ability to dish out punishing hits when need be.

Jerome Murphy


I think maybe the creators of NHL 20 thought that the Murph man would be an excellent stay at home defenseman. Murph lacks any offensive abilities, but seems to be back much more often that Slater. If Murph gets a penalty shot, use that time to pack a lip or drink a beer because there’s no way in hell its going on. We’ve all seen Murph come bombing down the middle of the ice and stick handle directly into the goalie.

I pick Slater 10 times out of 10 but what I find interesting is what other people think. I can’t tell you how many NHL20 Ranking Tik Toks I’ve seen where people value Murphy more than Slater. To be honest, they’re probably the same damn player with all of us judging by or bias or lack of bias throughout our EASHL careers.

Also, is the NHL20 soundtrack the worst soundtrack in the history of video games? Embarrassingly bad.
