Report: Stars taking calls for Brenden Morrow

If your team is looking for a rugged scoring left winger, the Dallas Stars have one available.

Jeremy Rutherford of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports Stars captain Brenden Morrow is available for trade and some of the usual suspects are already trying to land him.

Dallas captain Brenden Morrow is believed to be available and it appears that the Blues have interest. They may not be the only team asking about Morrow, as the New York Rangers, San Jose Sharks and Los Angeles Kings may also be in contact with the Stars.

What, no Flyers? The Blues’ interest makes a lot of sense as GM Doug Armstrong and coach Ken Hitchcock are very familiar with Morrow from their days in Dallas.

When healthy, Morrow is a guy capable of scoring 30 goals. Last season he dealt with some injury issues and had just 11 tallies. With the Stars adding Jaromir Jagr, Ray Whitney, and Derek Roy things are a bit different there now and perhaps feel it’s time to move on from the past.

      Hahahahahahahahahaha. Brenden Morrow is the type of guy every GM wants, but idiots like you are to stupid to realize why.

      Same moronic comments from the same idiot. Soupcan save your rhetoric for the kiddies and let the big boys and girls talk here. Morrow is a quality player- if he stays healthy. I would exercise caution in the dealings however based upon that fact

    • mattryannolan - Jul 10, 2012 at 5:38 PM

      Again using words like The Franchise and Soupcan to describe your team is an easy way to make you hated.

    If made available, Steve Yzerman will be all over him, He likes the way he stands in front of the net, not to mention his leadership. Remember when steve Yzerman picked him up when he was GM for Canada? he picked him over alot of superstar players.

    Shero is a Holland wannabe so that is why everytime Shero copies Holland. The franchise? last time I checked Montreal has 21 more cup wins than the Penguins.

    Whoa! An overtime goal must mean he’s good

    • ewampus - Jul 10, 2012 at 12:22 PM

      it does ask thorton

    Hawks should go after him, their left wings may be the worse in the game… Oh as for that inbred idiot who jerks off thinking he is better than the flyers. Tell your mom to have an abortion next time : )

    • dhawks19 - Jul 10, 2012 at 1:33 PM

      And if they get him they probably won’t need doan but 4 who maybe sharp or Hossa or hjalmarsson and a pick I don’t know of they have the cap

  7. handsofsweed - Jul 10, 2012 at 12:19 PM

    The odd part is that the Pens aren’t mentioned. You’d think they’d be in the market for a LW for Sid’s line.

  8. sjsharks66 - Jul 10, 2012 at 12:24 PM

    You convinced me! I want him on the sharks so he can score one big OT goal. That is….if he is healthy for an entire season.

  9. sjsharks66 - Jul 10, 2012 at 12:43 PM

    Yeah, because every GM wants an injury prone left winger who gets 11 goals and 15 assists.

  10. kingfooj - Jul 10, 2012 at 1:08 PM

    This would be a good pick up. Hypothetically, if you get doan and morrow on the same line on the same team, theyll grind teams souls away, and then score. These guys were my teams division rivals but i wouldnt hesitate to have both

  11. sjsharks66 - Jul 10, 2012 at 1:10 PM

    How would Dustin Brown feel about playing with Doan? Lol

    • kingfooj - Jul 10, 2012 at 1:13 PM

      my thoughts exactly, would love listen in on that awkward conversation if it ever were to happen

  12. capsfan19 - Jul 10, 2012 at 1:45 PM

    Trade ryder to the caps!! Do it! DO EEEET!

  13. dallasstars9 - Jul 10, 2012 at 4:15 PM

    Stars fans would hate to see him go. After Modano he has been the face of the franchise and watching him grow up and play for the Portland Winterhawks you know any team would be happy to add him to their roster. He is injury prone and the past few seasons have proved that.

  14. jfullan89 - Jul 11, 2012 at 11:33 AM

    All i know is i don’t want to hear that the red wings are in the mix…we have been in the”mix” for everyone but so far i think holland turned his phone off and went on vacation.
