    Morin was better than Hagg imo. I think management took a gamble and figured they could let Morin marinate 1 more year for the perfect scenario...but injuries took place

    Now it could cost him his NHL career unfortunately

    IMO Morin should have been the call up

    Could hagg even go back to minors without being put on waivers?

    Morin wasn't going to spend the year in Lehigh, Hextall said when he sent him down he expected to play all three rookie defensemen last year.

    Was that Hextall telling the truth, or using GM-speak to lie?

    Above average compared to whom/what?

    He came with a nice toolset at his draft age, carried that through College but now he looks strictly average most of the time against AHL competition and I don't see the mobility or hockey sense that would set him apart from NHL competition.

    But I agree in that he could have a solid pro career. Being average and not having any glaring holes in your skillset is all it takes to be a solid third pairing guy for many years.

    I do not know about all that.. He would play last season if not for injuries or iffy coaching decisions. Manning got a lot of ice time for no particular reason.

    I see Friedman as the anti-Manning; a future 6th/7th defenseman who will be a high-energy/effort guy who won't piss off the entire fan base.
