Boston Bruins, The Last Remnant of The Seguin Trade Is Gone

The Last Remnant Of The Seguin Trade Is Gone And The Bruins Have Officially Lost The Trade

The Boston Bruins said earlier today that they will not be re-signing defenseman Joseph Morrow. Joe was the last guy on the roster that was a part of the Tyler Seguin Trade.

Morrow was not resigned due to the high number of D that Boston has. This is also to allow guys like Brandon Carlo and Charlie McAvoy to prosper.

Morrow was acquired on July 4, 2013. Boston sent Tyler Seguin, Rich Peverley and  Ryan Button to Dallas in exchange for Loui Eriksson, Reilly Smith, Joe Morrow, and Matt Fraser.

Then Loui Eriksson who was the main part of the trade made great contributions to the team. He was a very good top six forward that played well with both David Krejci and Patrice Bergeron. Eriksson played in Boston until the 2015-16 season. In his three seasons here he scored 37, 47, 63 points respectively. Then at the end of that season money became an issue and the Bruins were not able to resign him. Later that year he signed with the Vancouver Canucks.

Reilly Smith was a great pickup he scored 51 points in 2013 then 40 points in 2014. Then once again the Bruins decided to get rid of a goal scorer and trade Smith to Florida in Early July 2015. In That trade, Boston sent Reilly Smith and Marc Savard‘s contract to Florida in exchange for hometown boy Jimmy Hayes, who now plays on the bench on the 9th floor of the Garden.

Hayes only had 34 points in the two seasons he has played for the Bruins. He has just been awful. The worst part is that he is still under contract until the end of this season.

Now to Joe Morrow who again was the last person on the Bruins to be part of the organization. Since 2014 Morrow appeared in 65 regular season games as he served mainly as a 7th D-Man. He also played in 5 playoff games this season due to the injuries the Bruins had this playoff.

In those 65 games, Morrow had 9 points and was a minus 8. The numbers are not great but he is defiantly better than the numbers state. He just did not turn into what the Bruins wanted him to. We wish him luck wherever he ends up and hopefully, he gets to play.
