You're comparing apples to oranges. Morrow looked great playing as a top-pairing defenseman. Bissonnette was always going to be a role player, whether a defenseman or winger.
IF Morrow has a great camp, and I'm talking more September than any quick 7-day session if the lockout ends this season, then why should we send him back down and keep someone that doesn't deserve to stay? That's why I stress training-camp competition, and ensuring that there's at least one spot open on defense for all these youngsters to compete for. That's why I'm against trading for Gonchar or any other quick-fix blueliner.
I have never believed in the notion of keeping a player down just because of his birth certificate or level of experience or just to be conservative or safe. I always want the team to break camp with its 23 BEST, no matter what.
Anyway, a lot can and will happen from now until September, with or without NHL hockey.
