From Hockey's Future-
2011-12: Morrow was so impressive in his first training camp with the Pittsburgh Penguins that he almost made the NHL roster out of training camp. However, concerned over a possible lack of ice time, the Penguins re-assigned the defensemen to the Portland Winterhawks of the WHL. Morrow picked up right where he left off with a powerhouse Portland team, posting 17 goals, 47 assists, and 99 penalty minutes in 62 regular season games. He had another impressive playoff performance as well, managing four goals and 13 assists in 22 games.
A mobile and aggressive two-way defenseman who can play in all situations, Joe Morrow has seen his stock rise meteorically since his draft year in 2010-11. Playing with poise and maturity far beyond his years, Morrow possesses the ability to retrieve the puck from his own zone and start the play up ice. His puck-distribution ability is top notch and he has a hard and heavy shot that typically hits the net. He also owns a high hockey IQ and does an excellent job of keeping his head up when moving the puck up ice and carrying it along the blue line.
"wow,check out all of the losers in here......"
dez, reading this and the one San provided in another thread about Fraser I'm starting to feel a bit more settled with this trade. In no way do I think Chiarelli would trade away a supremely talented player for anything less than something that would benefit and impact the overall good of the Bruins.
Let me ask you what I asked San earlier. Do you think this deal was largely cap-directed or did PC recognize the Bruins lacked something in their overall roster makeup and needed to address it?
I think it's a combo of the 2 RHO. I have no idea why folks are so upset. Most expected Pev to be dealt for a mid round pick so to me, the return on both of them seems solid.
