It's the second year in a row that Derek Morris has been involved in a deadline day trade with the Phoenix Coyotes. Last year, he was traded from Phoenix to the New York Rangers, and today the defenseman was traded from the Boston Bruins back to the Coyotes. In the desert, fans are happy.
Morris was a fan favorite here in the valley and should be another solid defender that will easily slot into the defensive lineup without disrupting the current system.
I can't believe that all it took to get Morris was a 4th round pick in next year's draft. That's an outstanding move to get a guy that we never wanted to trade away in the first place. Basically that move to trade him means we get him and Petr Prucha for a 4th. Who wouldn't take that?
