I know he went to play overseas for the year...does everyone think his NHL career is over, and if not, do the penguins still have the right to him if he were to come back over and play...i think Morozov would be an asset to the Penguins...I was overly sad to see him go...I remember before the lockout when things weren't going well and he was stepping up and in one of the last games (i think the pens went something like 15 - 7 - 3 over the last 25 games that year) they won in overtime and he just flashed the Pens emblom on his jersey for everyone in Mellon to see...i miss him...#95 is a great number too...let me know folks...and go PENS!
p.s. anyone going to the pens caps game on saturday night? I'll be there!!!!!!
Morozov is an UFA. I doubt the Pens will make any effort to resign him next year or ever. He stiffed the Pens, who still had his rights post lockout, by signing a no out clause contract in Russia. Unless the rumours of overdue salary payments by Russian teams is true, I don't expect him to leave anyways.
he is gonna be a UFA this off season, and in an interview last year, he said he wants to come back to the NHL once he's an UFA. Right now, he makes more $$ playing for one of the best teams in russia than he would've if he signed back with the pens as a RFA.
Play for better team for more $$ in russia for a couple years rather than taking less money to play for the sh|tty penguins, then come back to the NHL for more money as a UFA. Sounds like a no brainer for me.
