Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Mike Heika of the Dallas Morning News,
I talked to Brenden Morrow about the April 3 trade deadline, and he had a refreshing point of view.
Morrow knows that there’s a very good chance he could be traded, as he can become an unrestricted free agent in the summer and the Stars appear to have no interest in signing him. At age 34, he believes he still has plenty to give, and he is taking a calm attitude about handling the trade talk.
“I don’t read anything, but I do see things on Twitter and I do have people telling me what’s out there,’’ Morrow said of the trade rumors. “It’s a tough environment, but I just focus on playing hockey.’’
Morrow has a no-trade clause, and he watched former Stars center Brad Richards go through a trade deadline, so he understands the control he wields. The guess is he will not stand in the way of a trade, and that he and GM Joe Nieuwendyk have a great relationship, so the two will work through this uncomfortable time.
I imagine Morrow would be a good fit for teams needing some veteran leadership heading into the playoffs, but I do wonder how much game he has left due to the wear and tear his body has taken over the years.
