Morrisonn's contract


Defenseman Shaone Morrisonn will earn $2.075 million in each of the next two seasons. The Sabres reached the $4.15 million agreement with the 27-year-old on Monday, hours after they sent left winger Tim Kennedy to the waiver wire. Details of Morrisonn's contract had been undisclosed.

GM Darcy Regier is expected to meet with the media about 1 p.m. today to explain the Sabres' reasons for waiving Kennedy, who was given a one-year contract worth $1 million through arbitration last week. The decision left many people shaking their heads.

Kennedy was awaiting word to see if another team would claim him off waivers. If not, he will likely be bought out by the Sabres and become an unrestricted free agent. Teams had until noon today to make a waiver claim.
