Brisebois and Habs part ways
MONTREAL (CP) - The Montreal Canadiens have decided not to exercise club options on the contracts of defenceman Patrice Brisebois and minor league forward Gavin Morgan.
Brisebois was to have earned $3.4 million US next season after the 24 per cent rollback in player salaries contained in the new collective bargaining agreement.
The Montreal native's contract contained a $760,000 buyout clause if the team option was not exercised. Brisebois, now an unrestricted free agent, is allowed to sign a new deal with Montreal at a lower salary if he chooses.
