If you can't find a fit for Morin, you make a fit for him. Hextall and Hakstol failed him, BIG TIME. I hope Morin goes down, crushes a bunch of people and really gets that mean streak on display. Let him play the power play and penalty kill and let him use that howitzer if a shot he has. I still can't believe they can't find a place for Morin in the lineup, but that worthless piece of dog excrement MacDonald gets to pairing minutes. Ship MacD to Siberia, move Hagg to the right side of Provorov,
hopefully it won't be long until Sam is back up. Tough position for the kid but he seems to have his head on straight. I think this really is just about him needing to play the left side defense. Still excited to see him get his chance when he gets back to the NHL.
Gotcha. I mentioned elsewhere that I didn't think that should be a major impediment to him playing. He could play LD with Ghost as his partner. Of course, that would leave out Hagg.
He's caught in a numbers game and I guess they like Hagg's "safe" game ahead of Morin's toughness.
This about sums it up... it stinks for the kid but I think it won't be long until he is back up. Injuries are inevitable and when he gets his chance he needs to make hard for Hextall to send him back down. I still think he deserves to be on the team based on his outstanding camp and preseason but, as you say, it really is a numbers game right now.
