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!
If the Leafs were in first place on a 11-game win streak with Crosby and Malkin on the team. Then the trade wouldn't be that far-fetched for us to make.
