He's more of a puck-lugger, where Pouliot is a puck-mover.
I also think Morrow brings a physical dimension that I haven't really heard of Pouliot bringing.
Thats probably a good way to word it. They just play a different game and its always tough to compare 2 players even tho at the same position, play different styles.
I agree that Morrow plays more of a physical style, but thats the one thing I think people, when they see DP more, will also see. Scrappy best describes his physicalness, and he definitely does not back down from confrontations. I think that as the year goes on, its also something he is working harder at.
I know he has been compared to Keith and Campbell I think mostly because of the way he carries the puck. But he is fairly stumpy and think engages players more. Keith has a bit of a temper but its not always apparent.
As mentioned above by some posters, DP wanting to pattern his game after Doughty is really good to hear. You dont have to crush guys but being even as physical as Letang is never a bad thing
