Whenever there’s less than a month to go before the NHL trade deadline (February 27 this year), there are bound to be lots of wild rumours bouncing off the walls. One such wild rumour had Corey Perry on his way to the Vancouver Canucks for Corey Schneider, Keith Ballard and Mason Raymond. This is of course a ridiculous trade, one that doesn’t meet the Ducks needs at all. Yet, somehow there were a lot of Canucks fans that didn’t want the reasonably priced, highly skilled and gritty Hart Trophy winner from a year ago in exchange for a back-up goalie, sixth defenceman and third line winger. But I digress.

There’s always a lot of names that get tossed around before the trade deadline, but when Bob McKenzie brings up a name, people take notice. Bob McKenzie is reporting that Brenden Morrow may become available before the trade deadline. If Morrow becomes available, Mike Gillis will surely be one of the first people in line to put forth an offer.

McKenzie goes on to note that Brendan Morrow has a no trade clause and that Dallas may not ask him to waive it should they get closer to a playoff spot. But if things go bad in the next three weeks, and if Morrow wants a chance to win a Stanley Cup, maybe something could be done. Morrow makes $4.1 million this year and next.

Morrow is exactly what the Canucks need. He is a great bodychecker and can score. Apart from that, he has loads of leadership and experience.

Now, what it would take to get Morrow could be another story. If Dallas ownership (Tom Gaglardi, arch nemesis of Canucks owner Francesco Aquilini) decides to meddle, then a deal could be quashed before it begins. If not, the asking price would likely be high, despite the fact that Morrow is having a disappointing season and is 33 years old. But Morrow brings more than just stats to the table, as long as he’s healthy.
