Without contact he probably is feeling better but that doesn't mean when the season starts he stays that way.

If you're building towards the future moving Morrow to pick up a piece or two for that makes sense. Whitney and Jagr bring way more to the offensive table than he ever used to and let's not underestimate just how much of the culture problems lie at his feet. Morrow has shown zip leadership since he clocked Setoguchi in the 2008 WCF. It's well past time to move on and there's no guarantee he's worth anything later if his issues reoccur.
Michalek, and that too in the WCSF.
