More Morrow trade talk
By Victoria Matiash
The trade for Erik Cole is only adding fuel to speculation that Brenden Morrow's days with the Dallas Stars are nearing an end. And logically so, according to Mike Heika of the Dallas Morning News:
"... (GM) Joe Nieuwendyk has said he wants to do right by Brenden, and that he respects the fact that Morrow has bled a lot for this organization, so that might sway the decision. But Cole does a lot of the same things Morrow does, and you can only have so many veteran wingers, so I think he will be shopped at some point this season. Morrow does have a no-trade clause, but it would seem like he would waive it if he was given the chance to play for a team that has a shot at winning the Cup ..."
The Boston Bruins and Pittsburgh Penguins are rumored to be among teams interested in the 34-year-old veteran. In the final year of his contract, Morrow could benefit in more ways than one from a lengthy playoff run.
