    Wow.. what a crazy turn of events.
    So Anna, what do you think about the notion that Russell Wilson is better than Andrew Luck?

    Better be able to reproduce last year's totals at that price. But good for Gillis, he pulled it off.

    So, Mike, it's about this top 6 of ours ...

    It's something he had to do, especially with Salo gone.

    Hamhuis - Bieksa
    Edler - Garrison
    Ballard - Tanev

    Good enough...

    Time to focus on forwards now..

    4.6 is a solid number. Was hoping for lower, but I can live with it. Just glad we got him!

    The Vancouver Canucks have come to terms on a six-year, $27.6 contract with free agent defenceman Jason Garrison.

    The 27-year-old set career-highs with 16 goals and 17 assists in 77 games with the Florida Panthers in 2011-12.

    Originally signed as an undrafted free agent out of the University of Minnesota-Duluth by the Panthers in 2008, Garrison has scored 23 goals and 36 assists in 190 career games.

    He set the Panthers single-season record for goals by a defenceman this past season.

    Makes sense now: question of Garrison at 4.6 or Salo at 3.75 isn't really a question. Age, health, prime on Garrison's side.

    I understand Mac's point but we still need to see Garrison reproduce his last season. His resume is thin for 4.6M per over 6 years but I'm excited to have some new talent on the blueline.

    So it is true that he took a hometown discount:

    Garrison left $ on table - was offered "Wideman money" elsewhere - but wanted to play for hometown VAN, which held firm on internal $ scale.

    No doubt Gillis deserves props for the financial work on the deal.

    Question: does this indicate that the Canucks feel all their offensive problems were because they lacked on offensive D man last year? Honest question. Is this the extent of the offensive upgrade we're going to see?

    thoughts?

    Not to overlook your question Ink, but i just wanted to Post notes from MG:

    Jason was "high priority" on our list. The signing had "nothing to do with Justin Schultz" - Mike Gillis

    We're trying to build a team to take us to the Stanley Cup. Jason wanted to play on a Team that would go there. - Mike Gillis

    On Sami Salo - "We're going to miss him a lot. I think Sami has made a wonderful deal for himself. I wish him the best." - Gillis

    Gillis on goalies - "That was not our priority today. We are making the best decisions for this organization."

    That's a good deal given some of the other ridiculous deals given to defensemen in the past few weeks. Great addition.

    At 4.6, Garrison is overpaid, but its a STEAL for the Canucks in this market. I read it on twitter too but without having read it, I can guarantee you he got Wideman money from somebody. SHOCKED that he turned that down but also happy to see someone actually choose a team to play for over a few million rather than just go for the money.
