Key Stat: 10-1-0. That is the record of the Dallas Stars this season when Morrow has a multi-point game.

The Good: The captain started off the season on the right note, accumulating 6 points in the first 5 games. Then one fateful night in San Jose, Morrow broke his nose after taking a puck to the face. He missed the rest of the period, and came back in the next period to finish out the game. He had surgery two days later to repair the damage. He played in the game the night after getting his nose set. Then the captain really came out in full force -- hitting people, scoring goals, digging in the corners and fighting for the puck. His play after that injury elevated the entire team's efforts around him. Morrow embodied the style of play the Stars were trying to attain for the entire team.

The Bad: When the team was slumping, Morrow wasn't getting them out of it. He scored only 6 points in the entire month of March -- where, with the longest homestand of the season, we could have really used the points after a disastrous February. That was the time for the leaders on the team to step up and get the ship righted, and it just didn't seem to happen with Morrow.

The Bottom Line: Brenden Morrow turned into the captain on and off the ice that Stars fans had been looking for the past two seasons. He scored goals, was a spark plug on and off the ice, and led the team in his gritty efforts night in and night out. Overall, a fairly consistent season from the captain.

The Vote: Rate Morrow below on a scale of A to F (A being the best of course) based on his performance relative to his potential and your expectations for the season.
