The two teams have dealt with each other recently, Morrow had a bad season last year, and the Malkin line thrived with Kunitz on it but now he's gone back to Sid. I figure Morrow could replace some of what Kunitz brought to that line, even if injuries have taken a toll on him.
He's been battling back injuries all season last year. The coach says he's back to 100%, but who knows what the story is with Morrow. He's either really motivated to get going or really bored and felt the need to say something.

If Dallas is battling for a playoff spot, I doubt GMJN trades him. If the Stars are long gone by the deadline, any team can acquire him. Depending on his play this season will determine what he's worth.

Eriksson-Benn-Jagr
Whitney-Roy-Ryder
Morrow-Eakin-Wandell
Nystrom-Fiddler-Garbutt

I can see Nystrom, Jagr, Ryder and Morrow on the trading block if Dallas is gone by the deadline.
