    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 ...

In America, it's a big problem for us because we're not teaching players how to play all-around basketball. That's why you have Pau and Marc [Gasol], and that's the reason why 90 percent of the Spurs' roster is European players, because they have more skill."

    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.
