Who will have a better career Morin or Hagg?
I'll go with Morin if he's ever healthy again.
Seeing as the flyers are gifting opportunities to Hagg while making it as difficult for Morin as possible, I could see it going either way at this point.
Dv Hkstl let’s Hagg **** his wife.
She has no complaints.
He does the work.
Even with all the set backs I say Morin. At this point I think Morin will be the better bottom pair guy, which is really a bummer because I thought both these guys were gonna be studs when they were drafted.
Hogberg & Kalynuk > Hagg & Morin.
Anyone see my crystal ball?
Morin is going to be big piece of this team. Easy answer.
Morin has to show he can come back from the torn ACL and remain healthy in general coming off an an injury plagued season. Until then Hagg wins by default.
Morin if healthy. He's gonna be a monster
Morin is clearly better than Hagg. The only question is health and playing time.
hes watched lots of tape..
I’m glad people haven’t bought into the media’s nonsense.
I’m super excited about Morin. The setback is upsetting, but we can afford to be patient with him. He was always a long term investment. We didn’t hold injuries against the other guys, we shouldn’t do it him.
I still project him as a top 4 Dman with the ability to shutdown in the D zone, PK, and on the rush. He’s an asset this team very much needs. With all that confidence, he might be a key part of playoff run.
At this point I'll be happy if Morin becomes a really good third pairing D and PK guy. I think that is probably his ceiling at this point.
Morin needs to be allowed to make the NHL before anything. Then'll come the next hurdle of actual NHL development.
Won't be happening next season. He probably won't even be skating again until December. I have seen the time table of a February return but that could be optimistic. Even if he's ready to return in February, next year will essentially be a write off for him.
I don't agree that February is optimistic. I believe the timeline is very appropriate for a man of his size. i believe that it is the logical timetable. Optimistic would be November/December...with Morin, his legs are his biggest weakness while developing. similar to a basketball player.
Havent checked the poll yet, and of course going Morin here (even with injury troubles), but considering there is a decently large contigent that hates Hagg with a passion, it is most likely a blowout win for Morin right now.
EDIT: And I was right.
Before the injuries I would have said Morin by a mile. Now it's closer.
According to the poll, its Morin by a mile still
6-9 month recovery time and then on top of that he will need some time to get back into hockey shape. It was almost June when he had surgery. That puts his recovery time at December to March. The idea of him playing an NHL game on February 1st is a little optimistic to me. November/December isnt optimistic, its damn near impossible.
As stated earlier by LOD, I believe, him having a bit longer recovery time is actually better for us. If he comes back after the trade deadline, then he can stay on the roster with it expanding. If he comes back in Dec/Jan then we will need to do some maneuvering around with guys who could be waiver exempt.
Exactly, which gives all parties involved even more motivation to allow Morin to take his time in recovery/rehab and come back later rather than sooner.
