While I didn't expect him to necessarily crack the NHL roster this season. I did expect him come 4 months into his season with WBS to be something of a standout player at the AHL level. Not a defensemen who is a liability (by all accounts) on defense
It's important to remember 3 things:

1) AHL is suped-up because of the lockout. 2) Morrow is only 1 year removed from his draft (and others from his class are back in juniors) 3) Morrow is hardly an elite prospect.
