The Phoenix Coyotes are made up of essentially a bunch of players who have been bounced around the league.
Derek Morris is no exception.
Morris has played for five different NHL teams and amassed over 1,000 games in the NHL, but he's still playing big-time minutes and doing fairly well in those minutes.
He won't be a big contributor offensively, (two assists in eight playoff games), but his stay at home defenseman persona cannot be beaten.
Morris has 24 shot blocks and 22 hits in eight games.
The 1996 first-round pick has been shutting down the opposition's top players. This may not seem as important against Nashville's forwards, but in the first round, this included the likes of Jonathan Toews, Patrick Kane and Marian Hossa (before he was injured).
Morris gives his goaltender, Mike Smith, a chance to make the save, and Smith has been able to see most of what has been shot in his direction. And because of that, he has been making the saves.
