From Aaron Portzline of the Columbus Dispatch:
— Center Brendan Morrison, according to a report in Vancouver, is on the Blue Jackets’ free agency wish list. When you look at the list of available centers, Morrison is clearly at the top of the list, so it’s not a surprise. Howson will not comment. He’s not allowed to until Morrison is a free agent, on July 1. At 32 years old, Morrison is coming off two significant injuries, to his wrist and his knee. Doctors have sent an email to select clubs informing them that Morrison will be 100 percent by the start of training camp. When Morrison is healthy, he’s a very good NHL center.

Morrison has struggled the past two seasons, and at 32 years old, it is tough to say if he will return to the form of a few seasons ago. I don’t know how much I’d invest in the 32 year old center, but if a team like Columbus could get him for a reasonable 2 year deal, then I’d probably look closely at that.
