Yes, I do believe that they will burn a year of his ELC....last year the Blues burned a year of a rookies ELC for 7 games. Morgan can play both left and right defense and has done so a lot. He also would likley move out Franson or Holzer and give Carlyle many more options.
I say he plays this year for the Leafs after the World Jr Championship if the NHL dispute gets settled.
