Morozov shoutout in the Brodeur book

Postby ron_duguays_hair on Thu Dec 25, 2008 12:29 pm

Toughest shooters
(and how many times they beat me)

Alexey Morozov
(38 games , 14 goals)

"They called him a Devil Killer. I wasn't sad to see him go home to Russia during the lockout and not come back. He played for Pittsburgh from 1997 to 2004, and every time the touched the puck against us he seemed to turn it into a goal. He never scored more than 20 goals in the NHL, but he was a 50 goal shooter against me. He knew it too. When I played in a farewell game for Slava Fetisov in Moscow, he lit me up there too."


LOL. Everyone else listed are hall of famers.

I thought Morozov was just starting to come of age in the NHL when he left. I would've been interested to see what he could have done had he stayed.

Yeah,he was I think 27y old when he left NHL.. soo he was coming into best years for a player. And he spent them in Kazan,but i would love to see him here again,i always liked him. I think he would easily score 30 goals as Geno's or Sid's winger..

Malkin make the call. (don't try to talk english though)

There must be something in the Penguin fan DNA that has us salivating over players that we initially ran out of town with torches and pitchforks.

This statement assumes Morozov is not a HOFer. What's wrong with you?

It's funny. There is always a "the grass is greener on the other side" mentality. Then when we get to the other side we instantly feel the need to go back b/c somehow the side we came from is now sprouting beer bushes and money trees.

I always liked the guy... remember when we made him a checker for a few games and he was running around hitting everybody? I can still see him holding the pens logo away from his chest telling the fans he wants to be here.
If Kovy wouldnt have broke our hearts after the lockout Morozov would be a distant memory... Gotta have someone named Alexey or Alexander or Alex.

He is Satan. Except Satan was more productive earlier in his career.

Morozov will be 32 in two months time. Not that there aren't other reasons the Pens shouldn't sign him, but that's one right there.

Still one of my all-time favorite goal celebrations. It's the antithesis of the football player catching a TD, turning to the stands and pointing to the name on the back of his jersey. Those were the dark years (look at the names on the jerseys in the celebration... Buchberger, Focht, :cry: ) and it was a statement to those of us that were with the team throughout. I always took it as not necessarily that he wanted to be here, but that he was here, as were his teammates, as were the fans.... and to remember the organization had a rich history.

I won't say I always liked Morozov, because there were probably more games where I cursed him than celebrated him, but I can't say I was glad to see him go. He falls just below Lang (Fritz, Helmut) in my ex-Pen likability.

He could probably do what Satan does for us. Which is score goals and be the whipping boy.
