If the Pittsburgh Penguins do end up deciding on making a deal at the trade deadline, don’t expect top defensive prospect Joseph Morrow to be involved.
According to Rob Rossi of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, the Pittsburgh Penguins view Morrow as a top overall talent and would not be willing to part with the 2011 first-round draft pick (23rd overall.) See Rossi’s tweet below:

Morrow was once thought as a possible piece to a trade by the deadline, but after this, the chances he gets dealt are probably slim to none.
Morrow has yet to play for the Pens, but so far this year in the AHL he has compiled 14 points (4G, 10A) in 35 games for Wilkes-Barre/Scranton.
