It's not like Morrison is playing with Ovechkin.
There is a reason he's not getting top PP time and the best linemates-- because he's average offensively, at best. He's been given chance after chance to show his offensive skill.
In Lewgand's contract year, he played with more assertiveness than we've ever seen. It made him a better player. Apparently, he was doing that just to get a nice contract, because he's back to the passive, perimeter Legwand we all know. He's not living up to the contract, and it's handicapping us from making other moves. But he's not the only one not living up a contract-- Dumont being most notable other.
