I have no problem with Shero parting with assets to "win now".
The problem is that me along with most Stars fans believe the Penguins actually got worse by adding Morrow to the team, and not increasing the chances of winning the cup.
Dallas fans take on Morrows issues earlier this season:

You could have found a thread on here to fire Bylsma not that long ago when we were 2nd overall in the conference......most fans are not capable of assessing ability and making rational assessments.
Morrow looked pretty physical last night freight training Subban, and never looked slow - depsite admitting that the energy level was a little low after the long travel day and limited practice time. He also made a very nice play with Neal as he came across the blueline, went to the middle and then passed back to the lane he left and sent Neal in for a good chance. The shot got blocked because Neal is struggling, but it was a nice skill play.
When Malkin comes back, we will get a pretty good look at Morrow's ability. He really doesn't need to do too much except work the corners and poach some garbage on Geno and Neal's shots.
