My favourite thing about that clip is how, even in some tiny/random segment of play, he still stands out as being really dangerous with the puck. This has been the case every time I've seen him play, you don't have to look for him at all, his skill stands out immediately.
As for the fight, he lost, but still did fine for a finesse player.
I felt it was a draw....the young man he fought has had plenty of tussles playing in BC.....
Such a powerful skater. He went crazy on Walker after he got right back up throwing 3 solid blows. Also loved to see his whole team sticking up for him. The one MJ player saw he was in a fight and immidiately came to help but the poor guy was clobbered by Rielly, an the refs trying to take him down
If Morgan can play with a bit of sandpaper and be resposible in his own end, we all know the offence will be there, then this kid is going to be real good. Nice to have him and Jake the Snake QB-ing the back end for many years. Now we just need to draft some forwards, most importantly a center.
his play in his own end is not a worry, its very underrated, it needs some work, but its already good. this kid could be elite. as u mentioned, he can play with an edge,
there had to be a reason why burke put him as one of 2 call ups if season happens, I think he knows he is nhl ready, its just that he missed an entire year of development.
He could get a call up for training camp but it would be better if he plays for canada and keep developing.

The kid has to learn to stop punching when the refs are breaking up the fight. Only punchesMorgan landed was between the refs.
Uuuuummmm, No! If he wants to throw bombs until he's all punched out then more power to him. As long as he ain't punching a guy while he's down then go for it! Showed alot of heart and didn't back down. That is what I like to see from our prospects. Good on him!!!! Plus camera breaks away for a few seconds there so it is hard to tell all that happened!
No, but it can be viewed as sucker punching as the other guys might not necessarily expect blows to come from behind the ref. Whatever, if you think it's a classy way of dropping the mitts then so be it.
