Peter Ebdon you forget how good he was, because his style was dull. Being boring to watch doesn't mean you're bad. Maybe Murphy is more instinctive a player, in that he doesn't think about shots for as long as Ebdon. But that wasn't the question.
I think the point about Ebdon having less tournaments to play in during his prime, and also beating Hendry for his World Title win are good points. Also, Murphy's tactical failings are quite well discussed.
Saying that, I know which one of them I'd prefer to watch play.
