Laich signed for '07-'08

Per Tarik, Brooks Laich got a nice little raise in arbirtration and will be with the Caps next season.

Forward Brooks Laich was awarded $725,000 in salary abritration this afternoon and is under contract for next season. I'm told it's a one-year, one-way contract.

Defenseman Milan Jurcina is scheduled to have his case heard next Monday.

With Laich in the fold, only Tomas Fleischmann, Jakub Klepis and John Erskine (all RFAs) remain unsigned. (And, of course, Jurcina.)

Brooksie made a mere $606,100 last season, so its a nice bump.

In other news, does Brooks have a twin out there?

I think Brooks Laich is pretty expendable this year.
