J. Morrow was redundant in Pit's system but I think they'll miss him next year since blueline depth and overall talent will continue to be the weak area over there. I think they could have had a much better return than Brendan Morrow. Maybe it will work out but I'm expecting him to wear down significantly, like last year.
I don't think the trade really hurt the Pens, but I do think they wasted a valuable asset for the most part. I'm not sold on J. Morrow being a top 4 anytime soon, but the demand was certainly there to land a better return.
