I think that the Hawks got the best of this trade. Looks like the Hawks or loading up for a run into the playoffs.

Thoughts?

Pretty insignificant move. Helps their depth at center, but I don't think it really makes than any more dangerous than they already were.

Brendan Morrison is not a big deal. I do not think Holland cares much.

For a minute thought I though it was Brendan Morrow. I would have said "This would be the worse Birthday for me ever." But in reality I don't see old Kenny worrying too much about this one.

Never thought that much to him when he was in his prime, just the guy who passed the puck to Nasland and Bertuzzi. I don't think he's the answer to the Hawks lack of a #2 centre.
"If I can be totally honest, it's not a lot of guys you get impressed by. Actually, it's no one else but him. From the bench, to see what move he makes -- you're like, 'I wish I could do that.' Sometimes you sit on the bench and just think, 'wow,' and you look over to the other bench and they sit there and shake their heads, too. He has great, great skills. I'm probably not going to play with another player who has the kind of skills he has." Mikael Samuelsson on Pavel Datsyuk

Morrison adds almost nothing to their team. If this is the Hawks big deadline move they've been waiting for, color me unimpressed.

This seems exactly like the type of player the Hawks DON'T need.

They spent their offseason acquiring aging over-the-hill players who are well past their primes in Brunette, Mayers, Montador, O'Donnell, and now they sign an undersized 36 year old with serious injury problems.

This isn't the early 2000s Brendan Morrison who played on the Bert-Naslund line.

Very vanilla move.

I updated the topic title to help try and avoid the "Chicago got Brendan Morrow?!?!?!" confusion.

This deal seems more like a move to find someplace for Morrison to play. He had pretty limited ice time in Calgary, from what I've read so far.

"And the best, I must confess, I have saved for the last, for the ruler of this Christmas land,

is a fearsome king with a deep mighty voice, least, that's what I've come to understand.

And I've also heard it told, that he's something to behold, like a lobster, huge and red!

When he sets out to slay with his rain gear on, carting bulging sacks with his big great arms, that is so I've heard it said.

And on a dark cold night, under full moon light, he flies into a fog like a vulture in the sky!

And they call him Sandy Claws!

The Hawks will be our biggest competitor during the trade deadline. Another original 6 team, with a younger core and a great future in terms of Cup contention.

Holland will have to be brash to outwit their GM.
According to my profile, my reputation is excellent. LOL.

Didn't expect him to be moved by Calgary.
