And you're right, he's not a good enough PP QB to make a **** PP dynamic. Bu he is talented enough to help a PP featuring Letang/Crosby/Malkin/Neal.
Maybe so but I don't think that would make up for his defensive lapses. Why would you want to play him 10 min a night in the NHL as a third pairing D-man and PP specialist when he could be playing 15 to 20 minutes a night in all situations in the AHL? Just makes no sense when we have so many D-men in the pipeline. I'd rather see them go out and get Gonchar for the rest of this season, if there is one, and leave Morrow to improve his over all game. That would make much more sense.
