Canucks Lose Morrison For Season

During the game against Colorado, Canucks Center Brendan Morrison tore his right ACL. He is expected to miss the rest of the regular season and all of the playoffs.

Morrison is a UFA in the summer, so there is a chance that he has played his last game as a Canuck.

    The Canucks are going to try to re-sign him because he's too valuable to the team, despite his injuries.

    This team will not make the playoffs.

    They have ZERO offence, they are lucky to get some out of Kesler and Burrows because the twins and the captain are having average seasons.

    This team was injury plagued all season, too bad.

    I don't think the CaSUcks will re-sign him unless he takes a huge discount (say $2 million total, or $1.5 with bonuses)… he's really past his prime (32) and is starting to show his lack of talent and heart.

    But, he's better than 3/4ths of the Canucks team… which says a lot.

    With Luongo gone to see his wife for AT LEAST one game, the Canucks may very well kiss their season good bye!

  5. BruMagnus says:

    I disagree that he's valuable. He's 32, isn't very good, and takes up lots of salary. The Canucks would be much better served having a true 2nd line center.

  6. leafy says:

    He's got 25 points in 39 games.  So he's on pace for 53 points.  In this era, that's very good.  50 point guys are very valuable.  I'm not saying he's a superstar, but it's unfair to say he "isn't very good".  Of course, the issue with Morrison is his health.

    It doesn't even matter at this point, the season is lost, and even if they make the playoffs they will make a quick 1st round exit, as much as I love them, there needs to be some MAJOR changes this off season, letting both Naslund and Morrison walk is a good start and it would free up enough money for us to bring in some scoring and a heavyweight tough guy which we so deperately need.

  8. BruMagnus says:

    Is this really news worthy?

    I guess coupled with Luongo getting PULLED back-to-back games (1st time as a Canuck) it shows what a crappy team the Canucks really are.

    oh, and expect dirty pathetic Burrows to get a suspension.

  9. BruMagnus says:

    It's still not a great 2nd line center. And he'll be worse next year and more injured.

    It's like saying Havlat is a 100-point scorer, on pace… except he's always injured, just like B-Mo of late…

  10. leafy says:

    For Vancouver, those are Gretzky numbers.  Haha!

    Uhhh, Havalt has 27 points in 35 games this year…thus he would be on pace for 63 points.  And Morrison is a solid second line center.  And before this injury plagued season Morrison hadn't missed a game in 5 years.  Bad luck, bad timing (last year of his contract) but I believe the Canuck's will resign him to somewhat of a home town discount.  I wouldn't be surprised to see him get a 2 year deal for $4 to $5 million.  

  12. BruMagnus says:

    My bad about Havlat.
    I wasn't refering to this year.
    In the past he's had a PPG average in shortened seasons. He's been pace to be a 80-90 point guy, in the past before this heavily injured year again.
