Thanks for posting that.

I agree, I think he could be a very good, top 4 blueliner who can do a bit of everything and excels on the defensive side of the game.

The fact our scout is publicly commenting on him though tends to not bode well for us getting him though. Teams don't usually comment on guys they are secretly high on, outside of the top tier (IE top 10) prospects.

Granted it's within the division (for this season at least), but should Dean be interested in trading for Morrow?
Depends on the cost, but where would he go? Is he really a top 6 guy anymore? I don't think he is. I think he can still play well, and be an excellent 3rd line guy, but our problem really isn't our 3rd or 4th line, and who do we pull off of the 3rd line anyways? He'd cost to much and is to good for the 4th line, so replacing King with him isn't worth it.

I could see if we felt that we wanted to replace Penner with him, maybe then, but I think DL will look elsewhwre first and turn to Morrow more as a B or C or even D option. And of course, the cost will come into play. I'd imagine, even as a rental, he could fetch a 1st, or a 2nd and a B-tier prospect. After what Gaustad netted, I can't see anyone going cheap anymore.

He is NOT Ryan Smyth.
