That video seems ironic. The Rundblad/Turris trade was a very unique situation. It's not often that you see young players with a ton of talent and potential, who are actually further along in development, holding out the way that Turris did (mostly because they get played when they have his kind of potential.)
To get high end players like that in the prime, or entering the prime, of their careers you would have to start with Zibanejad and add big time (like talking about Bobby Ryan or Rick Nash.) Someone like Morrow likely wouldn't cost Zibanejad anyway, but I'm not convinced that he's over the hill because of one bad season. 33 is still fairly young and he would bring a lot to the team. Plus...how often has Morrow played with a centre of Spezza or even Turris' caliber? I would think a fairly sizeable jump in production could be expected if he stayed healthy.
