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!

no it doesn't! Actually looks great! But I got a sneaking feeling that Lidstrom will be back again next season, but that should not deter Holland from offering the moon to Suter to make sure he is a Red Wing for at least the next 5-6 seasons.

I notice there is no Cleary in your lineup, are you trading him for Morrow? Not that it is a bad idea, just curious... Me personally, I would rather see Morrow on line #2 and move Hudler or let him go UFA, but if I lost Cleary to obtain Morrow, I am not complaining...

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!

Just looking at their GA I would think they would try and beef up their back end any way possible. With them giving up someone like Morrow I think they would try and address most if not all of their needs. Now giving up a prospect/pick, a roster player and a defenseman is a lot... so one of them would be the big piece while the others would degrade in "value".

If Ericsson was playing better I honestly think the Red Wings would depart with Stuart if the rumors about him already making up his mind to move back West were true. Stuart would be the main piece we give up but that would, I think, lower what we would give them in another department.

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



Obviously, you're an expert in physics, as well as every-*******-thing else in the world. Oh guru of knowledge.

You notice who was laying on the ice? Not Morrow.

So with such a quality trade pool out there already...do we think the trade deadline will be done before the deadline? I think these guys will go fast.

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.

It is kind of funny, especially considering how awful Drake was in the regular season. But he had a good playoffs and also supposedly gave Datsyuk advice on hitting, which has clearly paid off.

All in all a net gain, but I think his role on the team is getting a little overblown as the years go by.


Still, I'd take Morrow on the Wings in a heartbeat. Even if it costs some prospects, this is the year to go for it. Potentially Lidstrom's last year, but also Dats, Franzen, and Z aren't getting any younger either.

Exactly and I agree entirely.

I don't think it's too much of a stretch to say someone like Morrow could put the Red Wings over the top. They play strong defense (most nights), have excellent goaltending and solid depth at forward. I still think a natural goal-scoring winger would be quite a welcome addition, but between the asking price and lack of those available at the deadline, that may be difficult to address.

Imagine what Morrow's game brings on say the third line paired with Helm and someone like Cleary. Definitely makes the Red Wings a tougher team to play against.

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

Sad thing is, we have a guy on our team that USED to hit like that, but not anymore, or at least very rarely:

Rutuu is the same as Morrow though... it is younger and could equal the offensive output of Morrow and bring the same attitude while being five years younger.

Tootoo does NOT belong on this team. He is classless and I would rather see the Wings be bad than classless. I feel the same way about Bertuzzi as well, but he at least CAN make the team better. With Tootoo the team becomes worse and in danger of being classless. Would you have liked Claude on the team? Or Roy? No. So why would you be okay with that POS.

Wait. Are you a proponent of trading Filppula for Morrow? Please tell me you aren't serious... That's a terribly lopsided offer in favor of the Stars AND you want to add Tatar???

ruutu is known as a diver like his brother, isn't as solid of a hitter, and nowhere near the leader that morrow is, also is not as tough and doesn't fight. The two are in different leagues.

Exactly. Morrow is just an all around solid guy. I hope the Wings make a move soon and don't wait for the deadline. I hate waiting for news.

sheahan or Andersson would probably be on their radar, Niewendyk seems to like big or big and fast players. I hope it is Andersson, I don't think he plays physical enough with us, he would though in dallas where your expected to play physical every shift.

Morrow went on the IR today for about week. Forgot what he injured and cant find the article as I saw it this morning.

What does this do for his trade value?

Reduces the value, but only a little. He will be back no problem, so I doubt it will scare anyone off.
