There's no news on the team and these guys are paid to create content; So I understand, however...
corsi based on 5 games...? they can **** right off with that.
Also, and i'm paraphrasing, we definitely know what kind of player Hagg is since he's played for almost 2 years now. Again, shut up with this.
Defensmen take longer to develop, I for one would like to see Morin push his way into the line up. If he starts in Lehigh Valley and is lights out...Good, he becomes an as
It does suck that Morin is caught in a numbers game right now. Doubtful he makes it through waivers, so he's stuck as a 7 or 8 on the Flyers and probably won't play that much. I could see him (or Hagg or Ghost) getting moved for a piece that makes them stronger elsewhere, but I really rather they not move him. I could also see them moving him if they feel he's being blocked here and want to do him a solid and move him to a team that has a spot for him.
a) He's 24 and barely played hockey for the last two years, and
b) He's not one of Chuck Fletcher's picks, so
c) If he becomes a regular NHL player, I think it will probably not be as a Flyer.
Of course, I could be very very wrong about that, but history shows us that's the likely outcome.
Moving Morin at this point, even for his own sake, is a mistake. Due to injuries we would be lucky even get a second round pick for him. He needs to play . We need to get him into the lineup one way or another. His game will not improve sitting in the press box and his value will not increase either.
I've watched Morin in Allentown the past three years. He is nothing more than Ollie Lauridsen 2.0. He's slow and not particularly belligerent like everyone wants to believe. He isn't the kind of guy to try to ignite a spark by gooning it up and I never saw him come to the aid of a teammate. He certainly can fight (or at least wrassle a guy to the ground) but he isn't ornery and is often out of position. His size helps a lot but he is not the second coming of Chris Pronger or even Chris Ther
