I think Pulock is miles ahead defensively than Morrissey and I don't think many would disagree with me on that. I also like Pulock's offensive game better as well. The offense seems to come to him way more naturally. Morrissey takes way more chances and is often unsuccessful which worries me. I find with defenseman if you can get more with less, I'll be more impressed.
Pulock has never really shown me anything to suggest he will be an elite NHL player.
When I look at Morrissey all I see is potential. Skating, defensively, offensively, and physically I like his upside.
Not the biggest fan of Pulock defensive game. Relies a lot on his positioning and stick. Saw him Sundays night and he threw maybe 3-4 checks the entire game. This doesn't really hurt his game, but it's definitely something you would like to see him add to his game, especially with his size.
Don't get me wrong I am a big Ryan Pulock fan, but a bigger Josh Morrissey fan.
