I thought he looked better than Morrison in every facet of the game. What about Morrison's pre-season no-show impressed you? The guy still has some wheels, but he didn't show much else. Schaefer scored, killed penalties, played better defense, is physically stronger than Morrison, can hit a little bit, and is much stronger along the boards.
I really don't know what Morrison some people were watching. His only real chance to make the Canucks was as the 2nd line winger (or centre if Kesler played the wing), but Torres outplayed him. As did Tamby, in my opinion. Morrison was the third best option on the second line, narrowly ahead of Hodgson if you don't consider future potential.
