Brooks Laich Signs 6 Years with Capitals

2011-2012-nhl-hockey-trade-rumors

Trade rumors concerning Brooks Laich ended on Tuesday when the Washington Capitals signed him to a 6 year deal. The cap hit is $4.5M. The Capitals did not want to risk Laich going to 2011 Free Agency on July 1st. Laich is a gritty centerman who is useful in all situations and can put up 45 points.

The term of the deal is long and the amount is overpayment. There is no home town discount in this signing. And so another player on my top 12 list of unrestricted free agents is signed. There are few top agents left for free agency.

Stay tuned for more signings and latest trade rumors for the 2011-2012 NHL season.
