Morrow era coming to a close
TheFourthPeriod.com

When asked what the chances are that the Stars deal Brenden Morrow before the April 3rd deadline, Mike Heika of the Dallas Morning News claims 70-30 in favor of a trade.

In the 1997 NHL Entry Draft, the Stars picked Morrow 25th overall. In 1999-2000, Morrow's first season with Dallas, he was named the team's rookie of the year, and prior to the 2006-07 season, he became captain.

Morrow has posted 243 goals and 285 assists in 829 career games.

Currently the longest-tenured player on the roster, Morrow is set to become an unrestricted free agent this summer. It doesn't seem that signing the 34-year-old is in the Stars' plans, especially given the team's focus on youth. With all the rumors floating around, you can't blame Morrow for wondering what's in store, but he isn't letting it get to him.

"I don't read anything, but I do see things on Twitter and I do have people telling me what's out there," Morrow told the Morning News. "It's a tough environment, but I just focus on playing hockey."

Morrow has a no-trade clause, and while he isn't likely to stand in the way of the team's decisions, he will have some say in where he goes. He is rumored, however, to be among players Boston is scouting in their search for a winger.

Nonetheless, having spent his entire career in Dallas, Morrow is fully committed to the team and will be as long as he is donning green and gold.

"This team is important to me, and I want to play hard and help it win," Morrow said. "Until [Stars GM] Joe [Nieuwendyk] comes to me and wants to do something, this is still my team. Since I got to this team, the only thing I've wanted to do is bring a Cup back to Dallas, so that hasn't changed, and it won't change until I quit putting that jersey on."

Unfortunately, for Morrow, it looks like his chance to bring home a Cup with the Stars is coming to an end.
