Interesting note on Morozov

the Post-Gazette noted that Morozov finished 4 the RSL scoring race, which is the highest of any NHL player

I am hoping you are a troll, because you always want somone to reach their potential, if you just keep underachievers around in fear you won't be able to re sign them later you are always going to suck.

Though I'm not putting much into NHL players' RSL stats, it is nice to see Morozov enjoying some success overseas. Hopefully he can provide consistent scoring for us when the NHL resumes.

I am a big mororzov fan, i just am not reading into this at all, he always enjoyed success in russia, he wasn't called the best player in the world outside of the NHL for nothing... My friend once described Morozov as a player with all the tools and no tool box, i just hope he got that tool box in the form of confidence

his new found success in the last few years is most likely because of increased ice time. playing him on the 4th line all those years did nothing for his development.

ok man just making sure you weren't serious, but i do agree, playing on the 3rd and 4th line was not good for him, but i hope this gives him the confidence to be what he is capable of

I think Morozov's success in Russia is just more reason to bring him back next season. He's one of the few NHLers that has played a FULL schedule, and he certainly did well. When the NHL resumes he could be more ready than a lot of other players that played abbreviated seasons (if they played at all).

I agree, but i don't think anyone is suggesting we don't bring him back

I think someone raised the point before that he always plays well in Russia. But whatever, hopefully it is a good sign.

You certainly don't want your players to suck in any context. I could see some folks calling him a scrub if he wasn't playing well, so it has to be at least a token good sign that he's near the top of his league in scoring.
It's hard to imagine a scenario in which the Pens wouldn't bring him back, or at least intend to.

That's something, for the life of me, I can't understand. How on earth can Morozov, the same player that falls over every other shift and didn't score in like two months on the offense-deprived Penguins, be outplaying one of the greatest young goalscorers ever? Watching them both play in the NHL, you'd think Morozov isn't even in the proverbial same league as Kovalchuk. And yet, by all accounts, Morozov has been the best player for Ak-Bars. Kovalchuk has had to adjust to playing second fiddle to Morozov!

I'm willing to accept that some player's don't adjust well to the NHL, but come on. How can Morozov be so good in the RSL, and yet be so mediocre for the Penguins! I guess it's always been baffling for Pen's fans, but Morozov has never done this good before, and it's driving me nuts!

I think maybe he was just a slow developer, but that he finally has. I'd be willing to bet the Morozov we get next year will be more like the one we're hearing about now -- which is the 2nd-half Morozov of last season -- rather than like the ghost of Morozov past I don't think it's an NHL/RSL issue.

It's also because Kovalchuk's lack of defensive prowess likely really affected his playing time and linemates on his team.

That's my guess.

Still, kudos to Morozov. Hopefully he still wants to play in the NHL, though.

i dont see why not though.
i mean he signed full time contract in russia cuz he knew the lockout could go long and it would just be better financially to sign a commited deal, but i'm sure when the nhl resumes he'll come back to steel-town

Morozov has stated that he fully intends to return to the Penguins.

Even so, Morozov is adamant that he wishes to return to the Penguins as soon as possible.

"Definitely, I want to go back there," he said. "I miss it already, you know? I miss Pittsburgh, the people, my team. But I think it's going to be a long time before everything is normal again."

I admit that I did it, but I had a few reasons. First, I couldn't remember if he'd signed a two year deal (I later learned that he hadn't). Second, if the lockout drags on past the projected start of next season, I see him signing another year long contract in Russia.

All that aside, does anyone think maybe he's finally turned a corner? I sure hope so....
