Value of: Brendan Morrow to Vancouver

Brendan Morrow would look pretty sweet sidling up to Kesler, and Dallas is looking at a rebuild with Richards leaving town. What would it take to get Morrow to the wet coast?

Unlike some teams I think Dallas understands that a rebuild does not consist of a team entirely of rookies.

You need veterans too.

I'm certain their Captain Brendan Morrow is among the veterans they'd like to keep.

It would probably take a lot. Schroeder + Tanev plus a roster player probably. Gives them a C and D prospect and someone they can use immediately.

I don't think Gillis gives up that package for Morrow.

He's they're captain, but to be fair, they have lots of vets on that team. Lots of leaders? Maybe not, but lots of vets.
You think they'd take picks?

Dallas management loves Morrow too much. If they were rebuilding, I think they give up Daley, Robidas, and Ribeiro, and keep Morrow.

Well sure they would take picks... but its gonna be ALOT of them.

Really Morrow is not going anywhere. Hes a fan fav, a great player, likes being there, has a good contract, etc , etc.

There is really no reason Dallas would want him gone. So it would have to be an over payment.

There is a difference in overpaying for Cole (a complimentary player) and Morrow (a heart and soul leader).

Morrow is signed for less and is a considerably better hockey player.

Montreal is going to be sad when Cole sucks.

If Dallas is rebuilding (I think they are); Hodgson/Schroeder, 1st and a defenseman?

The Canucks managed to do even worse, they signed Marco Sturm.

One year contract vs multi-year deal in the case of Cole but don't let those facts get in your way when making comparisons. If he stinks, he goes on waivers as soons as Mason Raymond comes off of I/R. Contract is gone at the end of the season - so who cares unless you're the owner.

I personally didn't much of the signing but I'd rather have his contract than Cole's.

No one wants to see Morrow leave - all class. But it can't be that impossible, can it?

Obviously its not impossible, its just not realistic. There is less then 0 reason to move him so in order to get him Dallas needs a no brainer offer. Problem is why would the Nucks want to make an offer that good? It probably wouldnt help their team.

Unstable ownership does not mean rebuild. Why would Dallas sign Ryder if they're rebuilding? Other teams fans need to stop acting like they know what is going on with Dallas.

Not offering their best player an extension shows how intent the Stars are on winning.

Ryder?

Goligoski for Neal and Niskanen.

Doesnt exactly scream - "looking to compete now".

Why not flog your captain, who probably wouldnt mind a chance at a cup for some youth and picks.

They dont exactly have a team that strikes fear into any in the West.

Lol joke's on you, nisky's not that good. And as much as I liked Neal, Gogo has been more than worth it.

Also everybody seems to forget (or just not have a clue about the Stars) that Richards said many times that he likely wouldn't re-sign with dallas unless the ownership situation was solved by july 1st..soooo why even offer someone a contract when they already said they wont be returning?

Neither Cole or Sturm are the picture of health, but they are the same age, Sturm signed for 1 year @ 2.25, Cole signed for 4 years @ 4.5 per. Sturm has 9 - 20+ goal seasons, Cole has 4. All in all I'd rather take the 1 year risk at half price thank you very much.

As stated above, Richards wouldn't sign without stable ownership so why bother

Ryder was an important player on the Stanley Cup winning team

Goligoski outperformed both Neal and Niskanen from the trade forward. Big time. Plus the Stars dealt from a position of strength for their weakness

Wanna try again little buddy?

I see Morrow as a guy that has too much dignity to dive and whine.
