That is a steep price in my opinion. Anyone know if he is signed beyond this season?

He's so slow I don't know how he'll fit on the 2nd line. That's my only worry.

I really like the idea of getting B Morrow. Don't really like the idea of giving up J Morrow to get him. That's either a really high price for a rental or the Pens simply don't think much of J Morrow.

If he had another year on the deal at that 4.1 cap hit, I would love it, but if its straight up morrow for morrow for the remainder of this short season and playoffs...

OK, remove the pick? TK will lose his roster spot to Bennett when this goes down, and will not be retained in the offseason, I imagine. Sweeten the pot in order to solve our bottom 6 issues as well.

I like it. Hate to lose J Morrow, but I trust the judgment.

Please GOD NO! I knew Morrow would be traded after watching all Stars game and Jagr this year. I just prayed Ray would not touch him :( Morrow sucks and is dead slow.

Or you save TK to shore up the blue line?

Kunitz - Crosby - Dupuis
Morrow - Malkin - Neal
Cooke - Sutter - Bennett
Glass - Vitale - Adams
TK
Jeffrey

Letang - Eaton
Martin - Orpik
Despres - Niskanen
Bortuzzo - Engo

Flower
Vokoun

Pens will need to send a roster player the other way or place one on waivers to make this happen. They publicly stated a few days ago that Bennett will not be sent down.

This would be a good deal if B. Morrow was 5 years younger :thumbdown:

Holy cow, what have you done Ray? Did you want to pay the Stars back for the Neal/Goligoski trade? :(
