Hey guys,

So everyone knows that the Jason Garrison signing has been by far the largest off season transaction for the Canucks thus far this summer. I personally love the signing, and not only am I looking forwards to seeing him on the ice, he also seems like a great character player, whose happy to be playing for his home team.

I have some friends though that disagree with me, I can see where they come from. Garrison has less than 200 NHL games played, and he just landed a 6 year contract worth almost $30 million, after only one really offensively fruitful season, scoring 16 goals (3rd in NHL behind only Karlsson, and Weber) and 17 assists for 33 points.

But he's also just breaking into the league, entering just his fourth NHL season, and third full one

As you can see hes constantly improving, and since he's only 27 he's probably gonna be putting up even better numbers in the future.

Both sides arguments have some solid points, what do you think?

P.S.- If this topic has already been made I apologize, I been away for a while, and couldnt find anything in a search.

The Salary cap is going up, which means that teams would be paying more to get players, just like we did for Garrison, I don't think it's overpayment.

Love this signing. Our team is better offensively and defensively now. He can play a stay at home role for the most part being paired alongside Edler, and the dude is a legit finisher that makes our power play even better with the Sedins setting him up for his cannon of a shot. Plus he's faster, more durable, and hits more than Salo does.

I'm happy about it, I wish Salo could have stayed but we have an upgrade on him...

May we PLEASE wait until puck-drop to see if he's going to turn out to be a good signing? Not sure yet? I voted, 'I don't know' but... time will tell... I DO like the fact he's from the area, though.

no, he's overpaid and is not as good as everyone says he is.
