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!
The Leafs aren't cup contenders. If the Pens win the cup this year will it still be a bad trade?

Do you think Chiarelli is regretting trading a 1st, 2nd and Colborne for Kaberle?
