He's not producing terribly, I just think a small, relatively one-dimensional offensive defenseman, playing on a juggernaut, drafted top 10, should be held to a high standard.

And a case could be made that last years Winterhawks were even more of a powerhouse than this years team is.
But Morrow was drafted 23rd overall. And he's bigger. And he plays with an edge. And from a goal-for standpoint, this year's team is no worse than last.

Hopefully he can start making more regular contributions to the scoresheet. With his pedigree, playing on that team, without many strengths in areas outside of offense, my expectation is that should lead the Dub in points by a defenseman this season.
