    I agree McJoe. He should really be around the 3 mil range but this market has inflated his value.

    The cap did raise 9% and so salaries should follow, but defensemen have seemed to raise significantly more than that.

    Love it.

    Obviously his point totals were inflated this season, but we aren't paying him to score.

    We're not? That was my question from earlier in the thread.

    Well we're paying him to fill a void on the PP, but from what I've read he's actually really good defensively and will not be a liability.
    So Anna, what do you think about the notion that Russell Wilson is better than Andrew Luck?

    This signing has made me really happy. I'm so glad we got him, especially after missing on Schultz and losing Salo.

    No. His strength is defensive hockey believe it or not. He has played tough defensive minutes consistently over the last 3 years. He would have been a target for us even before this "breakout" season. It actually sucks because we end up paying him more than we would have.

    Last season, Jason Garrison scored 16 goals, and added 17 assists while playing on Brian Campbell's right-side. He shot a ludicrous 9.6% in the regular seasons - a totally unsustainable number - and for the most part his point production is a mirage. Before you let your imagination run wild, know this: Jason Garrison is not a "power-play quarterback" and he is not, in all likelihood, a guy who will regularly score 10 goals per season or put up forty points.

    What he does do, however, is post terrific possession numbers while bringing a degree of versatility to the blueline, which, the Canucks have lacked over the past several seasons. In 2010/11 he played the left-side with Mike Weaver, they were tasked with Florida's most difficult minutes, and they combined to form one of the best, under-rated shutdown defensive pairings in the NHL. This past season, he bumped over to play the right-side on a more offensively oriented defensive pairing with Brian Campbell - and he produced offense, while tilting the ice in Florida's favour. In short, Garrison is a swiss army knife blueliner, who can do a little bit of everything, and he brings with him an absolute cannonade point shot for good measure.

    I figured before the offseason that if you were going to "buy high" in free-agency, you could do significantly worse than Jason Garrison - a guy who at least posted excellent underlying numbers over the past two seasons, and who brings a lot of versatility to the roster. Mike Gillis didn't just make a good bet today, he legitimately convinced Jason Garrison to sign for significantly below market value as well. This is just a massive, massive win for the Canucks, and their General Manager.

    I think when you get someone like Garrison who might be blooming right now at the right net value and save some change it's worth it. He had a nice season last year and is very much an uptempo presense. Now we just need Edler signed and then our top four is at least here for 3 years.

    That's a very fair assessment. Adding another defensemen in his prime to a defense that is around that same age is solid. I like his addditon to the top four. It made the Canucks better IMO. He obviously has to reproduce last season but this is a good signing.

    This is a video of all of Garrison's goals (16).
