It taking him 3.5 years to realize Vanek + Poms > Vanek + Roy isn't fact?

Oh please guys.....

1. Connolly avoided all contact the last few years he was here, making him hardly effective. He EARNED "the tin man" moniker.
2. Gaustad could have 3/4 of the net open and still miss, and not because it took more time than a snail to get there.
3. Roy's party boy, self-absorbed self doesn't bode we'll for a team.

I'm very apply the 3 are gone. And don't get me started about Gaustad being on the ice when Miller got ran over....

It's telling that Roy could only get a 1 year $4m contract. They needed a center though, so it's a good move.

Reputation and likely how he played in the playoffs with Vancouver had a bit to do with it.

I think he'll have a good year and earn himself a better contract, though St Louis isn't exactly the best place to put up points.

Any word on Morrow? I'm surprised he hasn't been signed yet.

I'm sure he's waiting for a contender to make a serious offer, but if I'm Darcy, I'm trying hard to lland him.

Injuries are the big reason, I think. Hasn't been the same since the leg injury. Gutted out a season with a badly injured shoulder the following season (he's soft!), and then was hurt again last year. After years of being durable, his body is breaking down.

Morrow just isn't the same player he used to be. He's slow his production has dropped considerably. Combine that with our LW depth currently

Vanek, Ennis, Leino, Foligno

I don't see a spot for him
