After speculation over the last 2 years, and especially the last few weeks, Brenden Morrow's time in Dallas if officially over. First off, isn't it ironic that the player the Stars get back is also named Morrow? Crazy! Anyway, from a fan's perspective, this sucks. Why would you trade your captain and a guy that has been with the team for the past 14 years? Obviously fans get attached to players and are sad/upset/mad when they go. But it's a business, and every should understand that. What makes this different from the Modano situation from the 2010 offseason, is that Morrow was not the face of the franchise. And Mike Modano wasn't just the face of the franchise, he was the face of hockey in the state of Texas. Though through a hockey perspective, this is a good move (before B. Morrow plays a game and before we know if J. Morrow lives up to his first round expectations). B. Morrow has been slowed by injuries over the last two seasons, and basically missed the entire 2008-2009 season. What sucks is that after a career year in 2010-2011, Morrow played in only 56 games last season putting up 11 goals (down from 33 the year before). This season hasn't gone better, only scoring 6 goals through 29 games. For the money he's getting paid, and for the expiring contract, moving Morrow before the deadline was a good move. I'm not saying Morrow isn't good anymore. He's a great player, that plays hard every shift, doesn't take any B.S., sticks his nose in front of the net, and is a great leader. Pittsburgh is getting a great piece for their team. Joe Morrow, a 20 year-old defensemen, I haven't seen him play or read anything about him (but I certainly will) Here is a link to his Hockey's Future page: http://www.hockeysfuture.com/prospects/joe_morrow/ Lastly, what I like most about this trade, being a Stars fan, is that after all this talk from the organization about the youth that this organization has, we finally have a chance to see some of that youth step up and make a name for themselves.
