Joe Morrow – Time Running Out in Boston
Morrow is a former first-round draft choice of the Pittsburgh Penguins. He was sent to the Dallas Stars, conveniently, for former captain Brenden Morrow at the 2013 Trade Deadline. Joe Morrow ultimately went on to be moved again as a result of the Seguin trade after playing in just nine games with the Texas Stars – recording a goal and four points.
Morrow has since been in and out of the Bruins lineup, playing in just 65 games over three seasons. He’s also seen some time in the AHL, and though he’s shown the potential to be a legitimate NHL player one day, he simply hasn’t been able to put it all together consistently yet at this point in his career.
Morrow is someone the Bruins could look to move on from sooner than later simply because his place on the team looks lost. With six defensemen all penciled into the roster ahead of him and a slew of defensive prospects on the way, Morrow’s chances of cracking the roster are diminishing each and every day. Though he had potential to be a solid player with the Bruins, he wasn’t able to find his game soon enough to make an impact.
