With the addition of Cole in Dallas, they will likely be shopping Morrow, and I think the Pens could get him for cheap (2nd-3rd round pick/ one of the lesser defensive prospects). Morrow's career is starting to go downhill but he can still hit, work the boards, and fight in front of the net. His lack of speed would limit him to playing on Malkin or Sutter's line, imo.
Nice observation. I would love to add Morrow to the mix, as he's my all-time favorite non-Penguin. I love his game, and even as he declines, his physicality as a "third wheel" on one of the top-two lines would be fantastic.
I could see him working well with either center. Ideally, he'd play with Malkin, keeping Crosby's line in tact. But Kunitz helped bring success to the Malkin line and Morrow is a workmanlike player, making him the prototypical Crosby winger.
I mentioned in a response to Pitts above that I would only like to see a Weiss-like player if a gritty player also was brought in to balance things out. Here's the guy.
Kennedy gets dealt in a trade, Bennett returns to WBS to get big-time minutes and gain experience before a permanent call-up next season, and the new new players each take a wing with a star. I hate to "demote" Dupuis, as he's performed so well with Crosby, but bumping him to his more prototypical role creates depth down the lineup that current is missing.
