My guess is Parent has to be coming back in the deal from Philly. He's wasting his time in the minors. A deal of Parent and Lupul is more than fair. Personally, I think Morris is completely overrated.
No, you are lost. Phoenix has already paid 2/3's of Morris' salary for this year. His value to providing needed stability on the back and for a chance to actually make the playoffs, with the revenue and excitement that would create far outweighs the savings of 1/3 of his contract even with the "pathetic financial situation" they are in.

That said, your offer isn't bad and if Maloney could find another experienced d-man, there may be a deal out there, especially if they don't think they can re-sign Morris.

You wouldn't get the Yotes' 1st for Lupul in a stand-alone deal so how does that make sense?
