I'm not so sure why you value Despres over Morrow. It wouldn't have been a surprise if Morrow had stuck on the Pens after the draft, he didn't look out of place at all. I just don't think management wanted to rush him. I believe Morrow's lowest projection is what Despres will likely turn out to be, a solid top four mobile two way defenseman. Morrow has a much higher ceiling IMO, top pairing defenseman written all over him.
Most of us Blues fans haven't seen anything on Morrow though. Not knocking him, it's just he hasn't played much at the pro level. A lot of us have seen Despres and have been impressed. We don't necessarily need an offensive stud. We just need someone who is a solid player who can play some shut down d. Doesn't even need a lot of offense. He just needs to be able to move the puck.
