We Got The Motz

The Caps have signed free agent right wing Joe Motzko to a two-year deal. While Motzko's signing is a "depth signing" and he can be expected to spend most of the season in Hershey, he does have something few other Caps have - Stanley Cup Finals experience (four shifts, baby!).

TSN.ca scouts Motzko as follows:

Assets - Has been an accomplished point producer at the AHL level. Displays enough feistiness and grit to play a bottom-six forward role in the NHL.

Flaws - Is somewhat undersized for the big league and doesn't own the hands of a natural sniper. Lacks a particular niche for the NHL game.

Career potential - Reserve winger.
