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

2009–10 Florida Panthers NHL 39 2 6 8 23 — — — — — 2010–11 Florida Panthers NHL 73 5 13 18 26 — — — — — 2011–12 Florida Panthers NHL 77 16 17 33 32 4 1 2 3 0 NHL totals 190 23 36 59 81 4 1 2 3 0
GP G A PTS PIM PO sts

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.

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.

I think he will be a good addition to our team, especially with Salo signing in Tampa. He should be a decent replacement for Salo on the power play, and from what I hear he is a fairly physical D-man. It will be nice to have another D-man who can chip in offensively too. Though, I don't know if he should be making as much as Kevin Bieksa. Bieksa has been here a long time and is arguably our best defenceman. Maybe I am a little biased as Bieksa is my favourite player, but I don't know...only time will tell I guess.

You won't know if you are happy with the signing until after he has played with the canucks? No opinion until then?

I answered yes, so I await the obligatory "sucking the Gillis teat" comments that we have no thoughts of our own.

Anyways, he was offered more elsewhere and is very good defensively so even with a little less offensive production it's a good deal. If he produces similar to last year, then that's a bonus.

I don't think you can answer no to this question. We aquired what most people felt was among the top 3 defensemen available in the free agent pool, he is from b.c, he seems to be a great person and player, He has a rocket of a shot, and he took a paycut to sign with the Canucks.

He will be so motivated to perform well for the Canucks since it is his favorite team growing up and he hasn't taken an easy road to get to the contract he got from the Canucks which he has earned through hard work. His story is similar to Burrows and I can already tell that he will be one of those guys come playoff time that will really step up. It seems like he really wants to win with Vancouver.

I am a few beers in, I feel kinda philosophical at the moment.. great signing either way in my books.

He hasn't even scored for us yet, he's a bust.




I voted wait and see because I remember everyone creaming their pants over the Panthers' Keith Ballard, and we can see how that turned out so far.
