I’m going to assume that he is gonna waive it for Pitt, and I’m also going to assume that means the Penguins won’t be trading or Iginla now. Really hope Iginla ends up in Boston. Don’t want him on a Western contender unless its Detroit and that’s not gonna happen.

Detroit isn’t going to be a western conference contender this year. They need a high end forward and a high end defender, like top 3 and top 2 respectively and I don’t see them trading for both. I’m not including DeKeyser even if he signs with the Wings as it sounds like he is probably more a second pair guy. Not like he’s bad, but in my opinion, the Wings have a #2, probably 3 second pair guys, a couple third pair guys and a couple #8’s.

Kenny had his shot and lost out to Walnut Grove.

Does anyone else find it odd that those tweets are from the future?

You can’t possibly be serious about wanting Morrow.  He’s basically a walker at this point in his career.

This looks like a little evening up between PIT and DAL after the biggest whiners in the league stole Neal.

Bonus points if they keep each other’s number in their new locations - saving money for fans on buying new jerseys/shirts

I’m pretty sure he was referring to Suter & Parise signing in Minnesota.

Strong work, Kenny.

How many Dan Cleary’s do you want on this year’s team?  Morrow’s done.  He may, may be able to pull it sort of together for a couple months… but if you actually think Brendan Morrow would make any kind of difference on this Wings team… wow.

On the other hand, I suspect you’re just whining because you want to see a trade and view the absence of trades as an absence of effort.  That’s pretty silly too, but marginally less so than thinking Morrow’s an answer.

Part of the press release from the Stars regarding the trade..

“Brenden Morrow has represented everything we could ever ask for in a Dallas Star over the past 14 years, giving his heart and soul to this franchise. On behalf of the entire Dallas Stars organization, we wish Brenden nothing but the best going forward and thank him sincerely for his years of service,” said Dallas Stars General Manager Joe Nieuwendyk. “That being said, we had a great opportunity to acquire a young, top-end defenseman in Joe Morrow and we are delighted to add him to our organization. We identified Joe as an outstanding prospect and a target for acquisition if ever available, and we feel he can solidify our blue line for the foreseeable future.”
