He'd have to agree to a substantial pay cut to stay here. My guess is DM is looking for somewhere around $ 2.5 M, which I'd be fine with, but that's a 25% pay cut. Morris is probably looking for something closer to $ 3M.

The problem is also contract length. Hopefully we can sign him to a 2 year, $ 5M contract ($2.2 M this season, $ 2.8 M next), but considering how much he's been making over the past few years ($ 4 M in NY, $ 3.3 M in Boston), he may want to try free agency.

As much as like the guy, I wouldn't want to spend more than $ 3M / yr on a one year deal, or $ 2.7 for 2 years. He's alright in all parts of the game, but he doesn't shine in any area either. I don't think he's much better than Aucoin for instance. Just younger.
