Just spoke with Unrestricted Free Agent Brenden Morrow again to see if there was a change in his status? "Nope, nothing has changed", said Morrow. I then brought up a rumor that had him talking with the Carolina Hurricanes, "Talking yeah, but wouldn't say there's any truth to much more then that at this point."
