I agree with you, it's just that it's not as big of a deal as people want to make it out to be. Ideally though this is two trades: one that acquires the under-performing veteran for not much of value, and a second that deals a soon to be UFA for picks and prospects.
It will make this trade look a whole lot better if Morrow is traded (and Roy too, if he can't be re-signed) for a decent return.
