08:22 AM ET 07.11 | 'Tis the season for trade speculation, and Brenden Morrow's name has certainly been caught up in the frenzy. But Stars' GM Joe Nieuwendyk said today that he has had discussions with Morrow and that he expects Morrow to be a big part of the team next season. "We had a good talk the other day, and I told him I very much believe there's a place for him on this team," Nieuwendyk said while vacationing in upstate New York. "I told him I fully expect him to be out there on the power play in front of the net where he's always been." ... He tallied just 11 goals and 15 assists, and racked up 97 penalty minutes. With the recent acquisitions of Ray Whitney and Jaromir Jagr, it seems clear that Morrow might be the extra wheel.

Now...HIM I wouldn't mind terribly coming to NYR

Being that he's only 33 probably means that he doesn't fit into Nieuwendyk's geriatric movement.

I don't know Spiny. Remember he's just "Morrow the same."

Christ Spiny and do what? Have 3 lines full of the same type of players??? ;) ;)

11 goals? What the hell does that address?

At this rate why not petition the league so the players can throw the puck in the net....we cant score

again, with some help, I think he's still a pretty good player. Younger than Doan, would cost less, and maybe fill the same role.

You're getting Doan. Isn't that enough? Or, you wanna be like Minny?
