Capitals Will Not Re-Sign Brendan Morrison

According to Tarik El-Bashir, who spoke with General Manager George McPhee, the Capitals will not re-sign 34-year-old center Brendan Morrison.

Morrison got off to a fast start with Washington but faded toward the end of the season, accumulating just 4 goals and 19 assists in 47 games from December to April. He was also scratched in Game 1 and Game 6 of the Capitals disappointing first round playoff loss to the Montreal Canadiens.

The loss of Morrison and uncertain future of Eric Belanger leaves a potential hole at the second line center position for the Caps.
