 SPECTOR’S NOTE: The deal is also reportedly worth $1.5 million, down significantly from the $4.1 million he earned last season, but reflective of Morrow’s true value at this stage in his career. It also fit neatly into the Blues payroll, as they had reportedly had $1.8 million in cap space before signing him.

Injuries have caught up with Morrow and hampered his game, but he still has value as a third line winger, while his experience and leadership should prove valuable for a young Blues team trying to take the big step toward Stanley Cup contention.
