such as? I think Zipay mentioned him as a guy that would be a fit for the Rangers, but not that Vancouver was interested in moving him.
It's been a few places here and there and I think Canucks fans talked about it quite a bit too. Now in terms of remembering exactly when and where it was mentioned I honestly couldn't tell you at this point off the top of my head.
which would make sense to me, if they weren't leading their division and on a huge run right now.
Not necessarily. If they were/are eyeing a different center (say maybe Forsberg to play with Naslund) than they've got to move someone else's salary.
So one approach is that you trade a guy you think is underachieving at the center spot, get some younger talent in return and then include that talent in a deal to get the guy you want. The Rangers and Flyers, with rare exceptions, are not likely to strike too many deals whereas Vancouver now becomes the lynch pin.
Not saying that's exactly what the situation is but there are many reasons why a deal would make sense from Vancouvers perspective. Also it doesn't necessarily matter if the team is on a run if you feel you're not getting production from a player. Of course in Rangerland that usually means you don't make a trade and wait till you go on an equally as long losing streak, but if the Canucks weren't/aren't happy with what they see in Morrison (which I personally don't know) I doubt any run would make a particular difference in their approach to "Bettering" their club.
