“Goals are like bananas, they come in bunches” -
“Good teams, even when they’re not at their best, find
ways to win.” - Morrison (06-07)
"Maybe we don't know any better." -- 4/19/02: Canucks' forward Brendan Morrison on Vancouver's
success so far against the Red Wings.
"If Bert and Nazzy are both sitting at 49 goals and the
3 of us a skating towards an empty net and I have the puck, I'm just going to look at the both of them and roof the puck in
the net myself" - Morrison
A reporter asked "Who's the best joker/comedian in the Vancouver locker
room? Any memorable pranks?"
Brendan Morrison: "I don't know if
there's one particular guy, everyone's kind of going at it with everybody else at some point, but a guy like Darren Langdon
from Newfoundland is a pretty funny guy. The guys get a
kick out of him. I don't know if I remember one particular prank, but little things like guys putting shaving cream in someone's
towel never gets old."
"Being a young kid and going to Canucks games with my parents, it always
crossed your mind that if you ever made it to the NHL it'd be special playing in your hometown,"
said Morrison, who was originally drafted by the New Jersey Devils in 1993. "Not to be too corny or anything, but it is a dream come true.
I remember going to games and trying to picture myself on the ice, playing in front of family and friends, and for that to
happen to me has been amazing."
"I'm pretty fortunate to be playing with them,"
Morrison said about Bertuzzi and Naslund. "Those guys are pretty special players: different types of players, but very good players."
"I was looking around because I thought they were going to bring a stretcher out to carry the gorilla that fell off
my back." --Morrison (02/07/03) against Buffalo
after snapping an 18-game goalless drought.
"They're getting old, those guys. They're getting worn down." - Brendan
on having to work Thursday while linemates Naslund
and Bertuzzi got the day off.
Brendan Morrison, who has always worn a visor: "It's common sense
isn't it? I know for some guys it's a macho thing, but that's nuts. If guys
are so tough when they don't wear visors, why don't they play a game without a jock? I mean you've got two balls, right?"
not afraid to shoot. He likes to use his slapper, even if it doesn't break 75 mph." - Naslund
In an interview with Dan Murphy right before the 2003 playoffs:
Mo: "...It's been a thrill to be able to play with these
Mo: "I'm just happy that I'm being included
in this interview, to be honest with you."
top line just blended. When Andrew Cassels got hurt, they moved Brendan Morrison
in the middle and it was a great opportunity for him. It's been awesome ever since. It's great to watch every night. They're funny too, because Markus and Todd argue about everything and Brendan is the peacemaker."
"I don't think he had to say too much. He just stands there and looks
good. Nothing changes. Keeps him in a comfortable role. Maybe if they released it a little bit early they could have promoted
it for an Oscar performance." - Brendan Morrison on Bertuzzi's TV appearance on Cold Squad.
"I remember telling my friends that one day I’m going to bring the Stanley
Cup to Vancouver"- Brendan
