Morrow offer from Blues is believed to be around $1 million on 1yr deal. Morrow was originally asking for $2 million when FA opened July 5th (https://twitter.com/JoshRimerHockey/status/381836465715441664)
Morrow has a history with Armstrong, Hull and Hitchcock.
It's funny, I thought it would be a good fit, he was probably a Blues fan because his favorite player was Brett Hull, now that Hull is back with the Blues as an executive vice president, and he's good friends with Morrow, this signing wouldn't surprise me at all. Good luck in St. Louis if true.
I'm really kinda meh on this. I would trust Morrow over Jaskin or Rattie at this stage as a top 9 fill-in. It gives us even more depth and a veteran presence (which we may or may not need) which makes me wonder if this is a result of the response (or lack thereof) of the hit on Sobotka.
And I doubt we sign Whitney if Morrow signs. Unless Whitney accepts a 600k/1yr deal, which is possible.
It is nice that players are fighting over what they perceive to be a winning Blues team. It's a nice change from 5-6 years ago where we had to pay Kariya 6 mil a year.
