Veteran forward Brenden Morrow patiently waited to see the situation around the league in his search for a contract and it finally paid off. Morrow is headed to the St. Louis Blues.
Jeremy Rutherford of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports the contract is worth $1.5 million.
As LeBrun points out there is the one major connection between Morrow and St. Louis right off the bat. Morrow was a Star for his whole career until last season when he was traded to Pittsburgh. Hitchcock and Armstrong know him well even if it’s been a while since there were all together and Morrow’s game and health have depreciated.
That said on the surface it looks like a great fit. Morrow is still a tough hard-working forward who is more suited for a third-line role at this point. The way he plays fits right in line with the way the Blues play; defense first and physical. If he can remain healthy it’s a pretty safe play from the Blues.
