Hockey Rumor Buzz Volume 8: Morrison To Sabres Is Almost Done

Hockey Rumor MillContributor IJuly 8, 2009

The Latest Information to Hit My Desk

The Buffalo Sabres had a difficult time in recent seasons luring big name free agents to come play for them. Because of that, they are now in hot pursuit of Plan-B.

Brendan Morrison, formerly of the Anaheim Ducks and Vancouver Canucks, is being courted by Sabres' management, as confirmed by two of our sources.

The Canadian born center came to fame playing between Markus Naslund and Todd Bertuzzi on Vancouver before the lockout. He is no longer as skilled as he once was but will provide what the Sabres need: experience up the middle.

We could be hearing of this signing as early as tomorrow morning.

Morrison to Sabres HRB Rating: 5
