A second-round pick and 19-year-old prospect Alex Khokhlachev.
It’s unclear if the Stars would have needed to package a third-rounder with Morrow to get that Bruins package like they did with the Penguins.
Maybe the preferences of Morrow, 34, factored into the Stars’ choice, but many might look back at the deal and weigh the value of the the prospect in the rejected deal (Khokhlachev, a forward) versus the accepted one (defenseman Joe Morrow).
One might venture a guess that the Bruins are still in the market for an asset. CSNBayArea.com’s Kevin Kurz reports that Ryane Clowe is out of the mix, but there are plenty of other possibilities – Jarome Iginla’s name comes up a lot – to keep things interesting.
Video: Leafs (finally) beat the Bruins; X-Rays come back negative for Liles
The Toronto Maple Leafs finally beat the Boston Bruins, a feat they hadn’t accomplished against their Northeast Division and Original Six foes in nearly two full years.
The Maple Leafs took a 3-0 lead – Frazer McLaren, known more for his toughness than scoring, recorded the winner in the third period – then held on for the 3-2 win.
It took only three goals on 13 shots for the Leafs. The Bruins, meanwhile, had 33 shots.
“I think that when you win a hockey game and you only get 13 shots, and the opposition – how many did they? I didn’t even look at it. Thirty-two, 33? I don’t think you can really say that was your game plan,” Leafs head coach Randy Carlyle told reporters after the game.
