It may seem unlikely but Detroit come playoff time gets awful enticing to older veteran players looking for a Cup. Morrow can play on any line, the PP and PK and brings snarl.

I haaaaaaaaaaaaaaate Morrow....but in a good way. One of those players you hate when your team's playing him but secretly would love to have. Would be a great pickup IF he becomes available and IF the price isn't too high.

Wouldn't mind him at the right price. Highly unlikely but I guess never say never...

Not exactly sure where he would go assuming the Wings have any outside shot at landing him. However, he's definitely more ideal if you wanted to have him as a top-six/bottom-six tweener. Much better than Hudler in that regard.

If he's on the bottom-six I'd cage him up and then let him loose on the ice as a wrecking ball like Dallas Drake. If he's on the top six then you have someone who can keep pucks down low and create space for Zetterberg and Filppula.

Always liked him, especially in the playoffs. As others have said, a younger, better, Dallas Drake.

I'm probably not going to play with another player who has the kind of skills he has." Mikael Samuelsson on Pavel Datsyuk

I think I'll remember this hit forever. Not sure if Michalek has any recolection, though.

Clean as can be.

Morrow is one of those guys I hate playing against. Not in the Pronger "oh God someone is going to get cheap-shotted" kinda way, but in the "everyone keep your goddamn head up" kinda way.

I love the idea of Morrow on this team, not crazy about his age but what he can offer short term is substantial.

Sounds good to me!

Morrow, Hemsky and Nabakov....plan the parade!


Yea, and say goodbye to most of our good prospects.

Yeah, that hit was hard enough to throw Morrow several feet backwards.

Let him go crazy in the postseason then handcuff him to Abby next year for educational purposes?

This exactly. Plays the right way, hard, physical brand of hockey that is a huge pain in the ass. Too many times I've seen a player get clocked by Morrow and thought begrudgingly "damn... good hit". I think the guy would be perfect for this team in the position they're in. They have the bodies, but they need a Cup-starved veteran, team-first Dallas Drake type (you know, the same thing we have been needing since the last cup). Add a guy like Morrow to set a physical tone early, so we can see more games like the St. Louis contest earlier this week.

See if they'll take Hudler and a late draft pick, that way they get a "better" offensive player and some greater compensation, while at the same time being able to dump the salary of an under-performing player. Stars might not bite, but it would be worth asking :P.

I agree totally. This would be a perfect fit per Detroit's mold of who they usually go after at the deadline for the playoff run. Morrow or Iginla would be the ones I would go after if they are willing to trade away some stuff.

We only have 2 really good prospects, and a lot of middling ones. Its precisely because of the large number of prospects, and large amount of cap space we have, that enables us to be a player at this years deadline. We can afford to lose a pick or two and a Tartar or Ferraro or two this year.

f***'s sake! Never seen this for some reason. My interest shot up about a 100 times over and mainly with everything else that has been said with the Drake type implications it would have as well. If we muster up enough to go after him with the legitimacy of our chances pretty good this season, I would be alllll for it.

I'd take him. In fact, that's what happened to me in NHL 12 (the Stars offered him for Hudler and McGrattan) and I won the Cup!

He'd be a beast and would play his heart on every shift for a Cup. And he's still a pretty solid player, albeit he's struggled a little this year. Maybe a change of scenery would spark him.

Would I want him over Perry, Iginla or Ryan? No. But those guys would likely be harder to get.

I have the same sentiments. He'd be a welcome addition, plus I have heard he is a consummate teammate as well.

By reading this forum one would get the impression that Dallas Drake is the best thing that has happened to this organization in the last 15 years.

Agreed.

That honor goes to Aaron Downey in my book.
According to my profile, my reputation is excellent. LOL.

What would they want in return?

If they get rid of Morrow I would guess that means they want to get younger. So I would say one of our NHL ready prospects along with a defensman and a pick.

Why a defenseman? I would think that a "ready" prospect (Tatar, Andersson) along with maybe a roster player. (Hudler, Filppula, Cleary, Emmerton or Mursak) I would hope and pray that Holland does NOT trade Sheahan, he seems to be growing very well and he should be ready in a couple of years to join the bottom 6 as a huge body that we desperately need...I believe Tatar and Andersson are good players in their own right, but I personally like this team with Sheahan on it, rather than the former(s.)

Anyhow, Morrow would totally make this team very hard to play against, plus I do believe he is a favorite of Babcock's as well... I just hope this happens. Add Morrow now, add Suter and "Sniper" in the offseason...Things in Hockeytown would aces!
