This is terribly sad news. He was a big reason for the run in 2011.

He's on the IR for the rest of the season. I'm guessing that it's also the end of his career.

He's almost completely blind in that eye, one of my teachers went to the game against the flames and he said that behind the play Manny cut in to turn on his blind side and almost wrecked a guy, didn't even see him

They aren't saying what the injury is. I hate to say it but it must be his eye again :(

Get well soon Manny.

Some day Manny will be behind the bench of the Canucks in some role .. he could be a great asset teaching our prospects faceoff and defensive positioning .. sad day ..

He was a big part of the regular season success that year, not so much the cup run. He only played 6 playoff games and wasn't nearly as effective after that eye injury.

Six and a half months of regular season hockey contributes to the playoff run. His line with Hansen and Torres one one of the better checking lines in the league

Never the same after his eye injury. Fan favorite that was involved in the community. Would love to see him kept in the Canucks organization in management or somthing

He was a big part of the team during the regular season playing six and a half months which helped prepare the team for the playoffs.

I hope Manny is doing ok, all the best to his family. Manny needs to have a position or something within our organization even if he decides not to play next season. His leadership skills, face off skills, and veteran role will be missed greatly on our team especially on the PK..

Big loss for the Canucks. Game 7 and you want to win a defensive zone faceoff in overtime, we no longer have that. Also brings leadership to the team. May not look like it but a big loss.

Not a big loss. All he is anymore is leadership and a voice in the room.

And he still provides that even though he is injured

I'm torn up about this.

However, on ice or not, his influence will be felt for years to come. He's one outstanding person in skill, heart & character.

Very sad news. He wasn't the same player after his injury.

I expect him to retire after the season and join the coaching staff. He is probably not retiring now for cap and salary reasons.
