I think Morrow being moved to the 4th line was a sign this was going to happen, and that he would play. It's much easier to move Burish instead of Morrow from a top 6 spot for a new rookie who doesn't even know the system and plays. I would prefer he get some time to adjust to everything and that he sits tomorrow, but only tomorrow.

Eriksson - Ribeiro - Ryder
Ott - Benn - Smith
Morrow - Fiddler - Dvorak
Nystrom - Wandell - Vincour

That's what I want to see. 1st line can't be broken up just yet, but it's getting to the point where it might. 3rd line has been atrocious recently, so I could see Morrow being up there to add a physical presence and some more offense to that line as well. Nystrom is just bad when he isn't scoring, but Wandell and Vincour and good enough that he might be able to find a couple more goals by the end of the season.
Ugh....Otter still sticks out like a sore thumb in that lineup.

The sooner he's out of our top six, the better.

If you're telekinetic and you know it, clap my hands!
