Not to mention that he was a pretty clutch player when most of the 'Nucks were anything but (I'm talking Cloutier, Bertuzzi, Crow days).
If we can't get Sundin I think Morrison would make for a crafty pick-up by Bob and could easily pop in 50 points or so playing 3rd line + PK with Higgins, SKots, Lats or whoever. He also would not demand PP time thus leaving Koivu and Pleks happy.
I've actually been surprised to not see his name pop up here much before, he could really help the team out and is a heart and soul type of guy, as illustrated by his ironman streak of 6+ years previous to last season.
