Now, introducing Portland Winterhawks defenseman Joe Morrow:
History And Accomplishments
If there was one prospect that could really be drafted earlier than expected, it would be Joe Morrow.
He's got a good frame, a solid-all round defenseman and also has very good puck moving skills. In addition, he's got a great shot and skates very well. He just seems to have a great well-rounded package that teams would love to get.
The only things he would need to work on is getting his shot off quicker and rounding off his game in his own zone, but none of these things would be considered major flaws to his game.
Now, he just has to continue developing all aspects of his game if he wants to become a top pairing defenseman in the NHL

I would prefer to find the Wild give their jersey to a forward on draft day.
