Should Garth pick-up Stay At Home D-man Shaone Morrisonn?

With questions still lingering about the depth and solidity of the Islanders defense. Their Achillies heel so to speak, should Garth take on the year remaining on Morrisonn's contract to solidify what many, rightly so, feel are the Islanders' biggest weakness. He's a big tough stay at home defenseman with discipline. He may be a good mentor for Wishart, who has NHL chops ... but on most other teams with defensive depth he's a tweener (AHL ++). The knock on Morrisonn is that he had a bad final quarter of last season and moved down the Sabers' depth chart. With Ehrhoff joining the Sabers this offseason, Morrisonn became expendable with his 2.075M cap hit. Morrisonn didn't play in any of the four Saber exhibition games thus far, because Darcy Reiger said he couldn't risk him getting hurt, which would force him to move another player via trade or waivers. What do you guys think? Is Morrisonn a good fit for an Isles team looking to firm up the blue line? Or do we go into the season as is?
