New Threads; Morrow, Hannan, Scuderi put on Blue Jackets
The Columbus Blue Jackets made sure their tailor was present in the free agent market, inking free agent forward Brendan Morrow to a 4 year, 14M$ contract paying him 3.5M$ per season, as well as defenceman Scott Hannan to a 1 year, 900K$ contract and Stanley Cup winning blue-liner Rob Scuderi to a 2 year, 5M$ contract paying him 2.5M$ per season.
"We are ecstatic to have lured these guys to Columbus. We consider it a huge win for this organization." Jackets GM TribalPhoenix stated in a release tonight.
"Brendan Morrow will become an instant leader in the dressing room, and will slot in as a key point of our offensive and defensive game. We plan to try him our at a few spots in the lineup, but believe he will be a key factor in our future success. Scott Hannan is a hard-nosed defender who leads by example, and makes sure the opposition suffers when they walk into our zone. Rob Scuderi brings a winning pedigree from his days in Los Angeles and Pittsburgh, and will be a huge part in our defensive corps. We believe we have added some key pieces."
"Sit tight though. We're not done yet."
