Morrison outplayed almost everyone in the training camp and got released.

AV mishandled BMO for sure - you can't deny that.


What the hell....

He was offered a 2 way contract.. He wanted a 1 way contract, and to play on the top 6 .
he was not released..... we offered him at minimum but a 2 way contract, but he thinks hes a nhler. so he rejected it and signed with Calgary which is fine. Since when do Canucks guarantee top 6 role to players who are on try out contracts? A.V handled it wrong? Are you kidding me? having him on the team, would have cut into Hodgson's developement time also.

We did the right thing. Maybe we shouldn't have offered him the tryout in the first place. As far as I know, he's severed his ties with the Canucks, at his own doing.

that ship sailed when we chose Schaefer over him



He was offered a 2 way contract.. He wanted a 1 way contract, and to play on the top 6 .


I don't get the B-Mo hate. He wasn't offered a contract by the Canucks so he signed with a team that would let him play.

the Vancouver Canucks are entitled to offer a player a 2 way contract who is on a tryout contract. don't forget this guys. I know some CAnucks fans here are on serious crack. I'm not even sure how the hell you guys forgot what he said. Unbelievable. It's like you kids follow the Canucks periodically, here and there. WE OFFERED HIM A 2 WAY CONTRACT WHICH HE DECLINED.

Players Nikolaj Ehlers have been compared too by the fan base of the Vancouver Canucks.

We really need youthful centers right now, but BMO will do. Our only faceoff man above 50% is Malhotra, everyone else has shocking percentages and BMO was one of the best in that arena.

I say snag him if we don't trade for a quality 40 point-pace guy up the middle.

I'd love to give him a chance but not at the cost of sending Schroeder down. Don't the Canucks have no roster space already? MG doesn't seem to want to put Ebbet on waivers so Schroeder will be sent down if we sign BMO.

No thanks.

I am not in love with the idea, but he can still play and for league min (pro rated at that) he would be a good insurance policy without going the trade route. What happens if we get an a roll, another center goes down and Kesler isn't back yet? I would personally prefer a veteran Morrison (with top 6 experience) to someone like Ebbet.

Even if he rides the pine or sits in the press box off and on. Hell we are doing that with Barker, Alberts

A two-way contract is a pretty bad gesture considering he has been an ironman, performing successfully for a whole year with rarely any injuries for this team.

I'd say that's a Gillis issue then.

Now you're just shaming him for wanting a 1-way deal. There's nothing wrong with wanting a 1-way deal. Everyone wants security.

Something we won't know is how much money he's asking for though and the terms.

I can understand if Gillis doesn't want to give him a three year deal but if it's just one year and for a set price, there's nothing wrong with that.

Mishandled IMHO.

Actually in training camp he clearly earned a contract, but we low balled him and offered a 2 way deal. We did mishandle him, as he was better than alot of people in our camp and could have been a great addition.

And it was 10/11, not 11/12. It wouldn't have cut into Cody's time, Cody rarely played for us in the regular season and when he did he was on the 4th line.

I don't want him this time around though Schroeder has proven to be plenty capable.

I've always loved Morrison, but he doesn't have a place on this team unfortunately. It's definitely been sad to see his decline though, I remember that big iron man streak he had going when he was with the Canucks.... its a shame that had to snowball into such a rash of injuries. Hope he lands somewhere and gets to end his career on a respectable note.

I'd rather see Linden make a comeback as he hits, has size and versatility.

But he's happy as a retired hockey player.

We need a centre with size, speed, and skill, preferably one who's young.
Kinda like that Gaunce kid we drafted.

The thing is he can't still play. If he could, then he would still be playing.

So... What good is it to sign guys that can't still play?

I am not in love with the idea, but he can still play and for league min (pro rated at that) he would be a good insurance policy without going the trade route. What happens if we get an a roll, another center goes down and Kesler isn't back yet? I would personally prefer a veteran Morrison (with top 6 experience) to someone like Ebbet.

Maybe Sturm outplayed him because he wasn't even in the training camp last year.

What's your point? Morrison wasn't cut, he opted out of the deal MG offered him. He also never played on the Canucks while Sturm was here.

Schroeder has been alrite i guess...

No real mistakes or anything; but by my take he needs to be more dynamic to justify his position. The coach is playing off him to protect him from match ups < watch the first two shifts of the Sharks game < and we need a match up third line centre who can take on the Joe Thornton's and Ryan Getzlaf's of the world. It's especially true while Kesler is out! If cant handle the match ups, he'd better be scoring!

Clearly BMO is not that guy either at this stage...

Actually in training camp he clearly earned a contract, but we low balled him and offered a 2 way deal. We did mishandle him, as he was better than alot of people in our camp and could have been a great addition.

And it was 10/11, not 11/12. It wouldn't have cut into Cody's time, Cody rarely played for us in the regular season and when he did he was on the 4th line.

I guess you make a better GM then MIke gillis.

He was a last might invite, because HE HAD NO CONTRACT with any team. So we did him a favor and offered him a tryout which is fine.

He is on a tryout, so he can be cut at anytime.

I swear to god, I listed all the valid points of not offering Morrison a one way contract.

First off, he was an unsigned UFA. MIke Gillis was kind enough to do him a favor, which was give him a tryout. Peter Schaefar also got an invitation to try out for the Vancouver Canucks.

By the end of the try out, MIke Gillis asked him if he was ok with a 2 way contract. Keep in mind, Morrison needs to know, that the 2nd centerman position is taken by Ryan Kesler, who had a monster season. Brenden Morrison is f in out of his mind if he thinks he deserves a 2nd position after going through the entire summer unsigned.

Because he was on tryout contract, MIke Gillis has everyright not to offer anything. Because Brenden Morrison is an offensive player. He does not have the Grit to play on the 3rd line, and he is also 36 years old.

He went to the media after this, and critized the management for offering him a 2way contract. A player that was unsigned during the summer. That part I found rude and disgusting. Right away I responded to the Morrison thread at the time, that he's on a

But again, I wasn't aware that you and the other Canucks fans, can make a better decision then MIke Gillis and A.V. I forgot there are posters here, that can make decisions then our management team. I apologize for wasting your time. Becuase he out played some members of our bottom 6 players, he deserved a 1 way contract. MIke Gillis did a Generous thing, by giving him an oppurtunity to play a limited role for our team, gets cut, gives our organization the middle finger. 36 year old Centerman, thinks he's entired to jack all, on a try out contract. Good job Nucks fans. You guys really know your crap.

As much as we all love Morrison, I still say we give it a pass.

When Kesler is back in the line up I think the centre's should be as follows.

Sedin
Kesler
Schroeder
Lapierre

I think you took this a little far.

We had a spot in our top 9 with Burrows out, and he played great in the pre-season and earned a contract, we were only willing to offer a 2 way when he clearly earned better. So he left, no surprise. He went and got the 1 way deal he was worthy of.

It's not a big deal, we could have maybe used him, but whatever it's not a big deal.

We can create a 4th line that can do that and be that checking line.

Manny - Lappy - Volpatti/Weise

But normally we use Kesler against top teams lines anyways. I think if JS continues this play he s on the team, and he will help provide nice secondary scoring.

I would take the chance on him. He played great in that preseason, then had a good season with Calgary. If he is healthy he would be a good 3rd line center, or even a depth guy.

The only reason I wouldn't take him is if it kept us from making a FA signing out of college or a trade due to cap space.
