I agree with Jiggy that Morrow will make a better NHL'er than he will an AHL'er.

Passing on Forsberg wasn't a big deal to me. In my opinion, I don't like the stats he put up in the SEL. I personally expect a bit more from a guy who was as highly touted as he was. The knock on him was that he was struggling playing against men. That's a pretty big knock. If you're a top 10 pick...you shouldn't be struggling to play against men.

I wondered the exact same thing, actually.
