Morrison Not Happy With Benching

from Chris Foster of the LA Times,

Brendan Morrison is trying to get off that track, though it is a course change that has been difficult to make. Morrison, who suffered a torn knee ligament in March and signed a $2.75-million contract in July, has two goals and four points.

Morrison did not play against Dallas on Saturday. It was the first time he has been held out of a game as a healthy scratch since Feb. 25, 2000, when he was with the New Jersey Devils.

“It doesn’t sit well,” Morrison said about the benching. “Am I upset about it? Yeah. As an athlete, the day you aren’t upset when you’re not in the lineup is the day you shouldn’t be playing the game.

“I feel I have something to contribute to team. It’s early in the season, but it’s time to get going and start making a difference.”
