He really needs to get his shit together, I'll always have a soft spot for him because he stands up for his teamates .. but you can't be a total idiot about it. He is almost too protective, other teams know they just have to rough up Couture(Burrows last sharks game) to get him to go crazy lol.

He's being paid to be in the top 4, and get the puck on net during PPs. Well, he was taken off the point on the main pp unit, and was playing on the PP point in Detroit only because of Bieksa's injury. Meanwhile, Ballard & Tanev have been better!
I definitely agree with you that he's underachieving and not living up to his contract.

I'm sure the Canucks signed him for more than just his 1 record year. He was brought in for his size, grit and defensive capabilities. His cannon of shot and PP abilities were a bonus.

He was taken off the main unit weeks ago and has usually been with the 2nd unit, not because of Bieksa being out. He was Bieksas partner when Kesler was out though. Yeah, Ballard & Tanev have been better than Garrison..hell they've been better than Edler and Hamhuis as well.

All I'm trying to say is give him time. He'll gradually improve over time....I hope

AV said Garrison has been logging good minutes and playing as expected so far. Good enough for me.

2 seasons ago, the whole city would have thanked Ballard for chopping Luongo's head off.

Blackhawks will never lose a single game in regulation time this season.
Guarantee it.

Dreams of having ryder in nucks uniform is now over.

Still hoping for a goal scoring winger here before deadline.
