Because he is not a good player, and certainly not worth what he gets paid. There are 7 or 8 current defensemen on the Detroit roster (or in the system) that I'd rather see on the ice for the Red Wings than Morris.

He's not a good player. Period. He certainly shouldn't be a top-3 Defenseman in the NHL.

Over the last 3 seasons:

217 GP 19 GOALS 43 ASSISTS 62 POINTS -21

This is a "great all around player"? Really?

I've watched enough Coyotes' games in person and on T.V. over the last 6 years to recognize how mediocre (at best) Morris is.

Yah, be fair to the guy. He's been on some TERRIBLE teams the last few years. That he's ONLY -21 tells me he's actually pretty competitive.

good checker, good fighter, hell of a shot, and a good shutdown defenseman, wise passer.....he may not be a Lidstrom, but sometimes you have to look beyond the numbers and look at the play on the ice. good all around player IMO. but like I said, obviously people are going to have different opinions, simple as that

Shut-down defenseman? Really? Derek Morris is a shut-down defenseman? You must be joking.

I swear I'm not trying to wind you guys up. I just have to seriously take issue with someone referring to Derek Morris as a shutdown defenseman. I've been following the Coyotes closely for the last six years, and I can say that I've been very disappointed with DMo since he joined the club.

Well.....watching DMo doesn't make me shake uncontrollably like it used to. I remember when my wife & I had season tickets, anytime the opposing team scored we'd immediately scan the ice looking for DMo. I still don't think he's worth what he gets paid, and I certainly don't think he's a "shutdown defenseman", but I'll admit he's not as bad as he was his first couple years in the desert.

I do have a couple Derek Morris bobblehead dolls from an SGA a few years back if anyone's interested! LMAO

Demo was the Jovo two years ago... now I think he is playing at least to his salary if not better but to each their own...
