Garrison can play big minutes.

In the series against the Devils he played 22, 24 and 20 minutes in the first three games.Injured than played 33 in game 7. Mind you that game went into double OT.

It is a risk signing him long term like that based on one good year, but risk-reward I suppose.

Although I'm happy to see Garrison a Canuck... Sami Salo's been a hell of a d-man for a long time for the team....

I appreciate that people are willing to take a pay cut to work in Vancouver, but man it really rubs me the wrong way when MG brings it up every time he signs a FA

5-6 million is what other teams were offering him. Probably longer term too.

Garrison > Ballard?

With all these over priced contracts, Edler would want $6m and Burrows $4+ by the time they re-sign.

Discounted when compared to his other offers and signing prices today. You also forget cap is now $70M.

Edler is no where close to being a $6M player. If we resign him it'll be no more than what KB3 is getting.

Sedin-Sedin-Burrows
Booth-Kesler-*insert top 6 forward*
Higgins-Lapierre-Hansen
Volpatti-Malhotra-Kassian

Hamhuis-Bieksa
Edler-Garrison
Ballard-Tanev

Schneider
Lack

I think this is what the line up will look like when everyone is healthy this season. Lapierre was pretty efficient as a third line centre during our 2011 cup run. IMO, Kassian splits time moving up and down our line up, and playing top minutes in the AHL this season.

Canucks need upgrades at forward. Lapierre is best as a 4th line center with Malhotra so they can alternate sides on faceoffs and generally be an amazing shutdown line. We need someone that's more of a 2-way forward than Lappy, as much as I love the way that guy plays.

They need to clear Lu and Ballard and bring in a top-6 forward, a 3rd line center and another solid 18 minute defenseman, preferably another offensive defenseman, freeing up Hammer/Juice to play shutdown let's-get-angry-and-hit-everything.

Hammer will never hit like he used to, thanks to those injuries he took hip checking Lucic during the finals. He said so himself, he avoids hip checking because it can hurt you just as much as it can hurt the guy getting hit. Juice isn't really a big hitter, and isn't that big of a guy.

Hopefully Connauton can make the jump this season. Connauton-Tanev looks like a decent pairing.

odd move, because Salo has stated his family loves it in Vancouver and he plans to stay. I guess the $$ talks, but that is pretty good

Its gonna be a shooting gallery in TB on the PP with Stamkos and St.Louis. DAYAM!!!
