Capitals sign Brendan Morrison
The Capitals continued to add to their offensive needs today signing Brendan Morrison to a 1 year deal. Morrison is an offensive minded center who was believed to be high on New Jersey's radar this off-season. The addition of Morrison fills the gap left by Fedorov. Morrison is veteran center who has a nose for the net and was once on hockey's best offensive line with Todd Bertuzzi and Markus Näslund earlier this decade in Vancover. Before the 2007-08 season Morrison routinely put up over 50 points a season. In 2007 Morrison injured his wrist which eventually required surgery. Last season Morrison split time in Dallas (19 games) and Anahiem (62 games), posting 16 goals and 31 overall points. He has played in over 80 games 7 of the past 8 seasons.
