I like the guy. I"ve wanted him to succeed. But @jammer2 is right that it's do or die for him this season. And @JR Ewing is right that he's not a Fletcher draft pick (or from Minnesota). Morin doesn't really suffer there more than anyone else because none of the young Flyers' defensemen are Fletcher draft picks. But I agree that he also won't be given any kind of pass as a result, either.
But I'm thinking about the defense currently on the Flyers and th

He simply has to put it all together this fall. Another injury would spell his inevitable end in the org...his fault or not. There comes a time when you have to pull the plug. I have been a big proponent of patience with Sam..b
In watching Morin play last year, he was the only defensemen and I mean only defensemen those last games that had his head on a swivel. He actively scoped the crease and when going behind the crease, he actually looked back on the opposite side to see if anyone was gonna sneak to the other side of the crease. He was high IQ, smart enough to guard his area like an Alsatian Wolfhound.
