So it's back to the worst hockey city in North America for Zack Morris' dad. Derek Morris wasn't exactly the puck-mover that everyone anticipated him being when the Bruins signed him in the off-season and at $3.3 million there has to be better option available on the blueline for the B's. This move is obviously to dump cap space to set up a move later in the day. Stay tuned.
