Serious overpayment on the part of the Pittsburgh Penguins IMO.

Brendan Morrow:
-34 year old upcoming UFA
-His production has dropped off steadily the past few seasons
-7th in TOI/G among Dallas Star forwards
-Doesn't kill penalties
-Doesn't produce on the PP

He is largely a physical veteran bottom 6er at this point in his career. Joe Morrow on the other hand is a recent 1st round draft pick (23rd overall in 2011) who has done nothing to hurt his value since being drafted.

As I posted elsewhere this is the equivalent to the Toronto Maple Leafs giving up:

Stuart Percy + 5th for Brenden Morrow + 3rd

..That is nasty. NO THANKS!
