morrow scored 33 goals in 2010-11 so still has recent form which will have a lot of value to teams. And he is still a hitting machine.

If he is going to be traded (personally i hope he's not). Then i hope GMJN waits till Doan is off the market.

Morrows value trade value will be higher once doan is off the market.

I think Dallas could fetch a 2nd pairing defenseman from a team with a deep defensive 6.

I realize the cap space argument is not an issue - that was just me trying to come up with ideas as to why he should be moved. My apologies for misreading the situation.

It seems like Morrow is more valuable than Ott and Ribeiro, whether he wore the "C" or not. Those other two could probably be repaced easier than Morrow as well (you already got a decent Ribiero replacement in Roy). If he's not a strain on your budget (which, apparently, he's not) or preventing one of your good prospects from getting a full-time role (is that the case, with Glennie or Vincour?), then keeping him doesn't seem like a bad idea. Or do you just want to "clean house"? I can respect that too, but sometimes it comes back to bite you...

Dag's + 2nd is the most I would offer from the Blues. Maybe throw in a decent D prospect not named Cole.

That's pretty much my thinking as well. I also understand if Dallas would want more. I just don't see Morrow filling any need for us. He's a good player just on the wrong side of 30, had an injury plagued season, and plays the position the Blues have the most depth on. I would see him playing in a similar role to Langs last season for us.

So unless an offer blows them away(as expected), he's staying.

Nice try.

Also, there is no guarantee we even get Morrow.
I guess you don't understand basic Math. Adding players of 30 years or older would constitute the team getting older. That's the point. Plain and simple. If they are truly in on Morrow that would be 4 additions that are 30 or older. That is what I question regarding direction of the team.

Lastly why refer to the Organization as "we". Are you a member of the team? If not its "they". no guarantee "they" even get Morrow.

We've heard that before. Dallas is likely feeling out the market for him, and will probably wait to move him until after Doan/Semin/etc get off of the market.

Stars get younger, faster and improve there PK without losing that much much production..

The stars already have the old veteran type so I feel it would fill a need.

Dallas also loses depth in their bottom six and a motivated Brenden Morrow that could score 20+ goals.

He's not going anywhere IMO, if he did it would be to the East. He's one of those guys that you make sure you do not have to play often if traded. The Stars would be smart to keep him as I can see a monster comeback year for him, especially with the forward depth they have added this offseason.

Easily. We don't need defensemen, but the value alone makes this an obvious yes.
