    Way over payed I think. Getting the third rounder back helps, but a legit prospect for a rental? They’d better win the cup because their prospect pool is already shallow.

    Joe Morrow is legit – but the Pens have many blue line prospects… was a good trade both ways.

    Morrow is exactly who I was hoping to get because he will make them harder to play against due to his forechecking. They definitely overpaid for him though. Now lets go out and get a defenseman, O’Byrne from Colorado would be a good or Ryan Whitney too.

    Pens did just fine. Depres has proven himself at the NHL level and Dumoulin is next in the hopper now. Morrow was great and probably will do well, but Pens have to try for the cup now and next year. There is a chance Malkin/Letang don’t sign 2014.

    Morrow is a washed up bum. Anyone who plays with Sid the kid will do well

    I think there is some truth to that.
