Caps Sign Erskine

Per, the Caps today signed free agent defenseman John Erskine. Erskine is a rugged character whose player profile includes the following:
Assets - Loves to play a physical game from behind the blueline. Keeps things simple and knows his limitations.
Flaws - Has limited offensive ability. Must work hard to improve his suspect skating ability. Will struggle when lined up against shifty NHL forwards.
Career potential - Physical defenseman.
