Based on everyone's evaluation of his play in WBS, sell. He's obviously an important guy for us long term and has a wicked shot on the PP / great puck moving ability, but sounding like his good performance here last year in pre-season might've been a case of his adrenaline carrying him through unscathed. And it was pre-season; not exactly a reliable measure.

I always thought he had a chance at making the team with a great camp this year but that seems more unlikely now based on people's comments about his all-around game and awareness in the AHL. Actually sounds (and makes sense when you think about it) that of the new guys Dumoulin has the best shot of getting a call up, after Despres obviously.

I am firmly in the "we're not going to waive Strait or Bortuzzo" camp at this point. That means you'd need multiple concurrent injuries for Morrow to get a shot at any point and even then he might not get it. Just depends on who is hurt / what's needed, and who is playing best in the AHL at the time.
