Justin Williams signs with Washington as the Capitals add valuable playoff experience. 

There are players who are remembered for a single moment, and it helps springboard them to a full-time status, or a fresh contract (ahem, Dave Bolland). Then there are players who have consistently performed in the playoffs, and build their reputation on that. Justin Williams is not Dave Bolland. Justin Williams has been one of the most clutch playoff performers in NHL history.

It's for this reason, in all likelihood, that the Washington Capitals signed Williams to a two-year deal worth $3.25-million per season. The man known as Mr. Game 7 has registered 14 career playoff points in such games, half of which are goals.
