Morrison Looking Forward To Ice Time In Washington

from Tarik El-Bashir of the Washington Post (Friday edition),

Brendan Morrison received a handful of offers when free agency opened earlier this month, including a few that were more lucrative than Washington’s.

The Capitals, though, offered the veteran center three things worth more to him than a bigger paycheck: the chance to play on a team widely expected to contend for a Stanley Cup, no small matter for a player who turns 34 next month; the potential to skate on the second line with Alexander Semin and maybe take some shifts with two-time MVP Alex Ovechkin; and the opportunity to prove his worth to NHL executives in the hope of securing a multiyear deal—if not in Washington, elsewhere—next summer.
