At least we'll have some defense in the desert as the Phoenix Coyotes have re-signed defenseman Derek Morris to a 4 Year deal. The deal is worth 2.25 Million a season which isn't a bad price for DMo in my opinion. He may not be the best defenseman out there, but he wants to be in Phoenux and didn't cost a ton. His signing though only happened because the Michalek deal couldn't get done. Seems like it was an either/or type of thing but I'm happy with the deal if we couldn't get Z to hang around.
