BURNABY, B.C. (CP) - Centre Brendan Morrison thinks subtracting Todd Bertuzzi from the Vancouver Canucks could result in an addition to his scoring totals this NHL season.

For most of the last five years Morrison has been the setup man on the Canucks' high-scoring top line along with wingers Markus Naslund and Bertuzzi.

Both Naslund and Bertuzzi wanted the puck as much as possible. That meant Morrison's job was pass first, maybe look for a rebound, then make sure he got back on defence.

I don't think it would make that much of a difference really.

He's good, but having Naslund and Bertuzzi on your wings can only help him IMO (when they were playing well).

Not to mention most will say Naslund and Bertuzzi before they menton Morrison. Like I said before, he's good, but I don't think he'll be tearing things up or anything just becuase Bertuzzi's gone. Maybe he'll be close to PPG or something.
