Hi.

Title says all.

Aucoin had 23 goals in 1998-99. That is a lot.

I think Garrison could get 20~ goals if he gets 1st PP and playing with the Sedins and Edler will probably help that.

What are your opinions?

I voted no, as I think we will see a regression in Garrisons goal totals. His stats got inflation from Campbell, and I feel he'll be a sturdy shut-down guy who puts up a goal here and there in Vancouver.

He'll get 15 goals, 30 pts this year (if there is no lockout).

Hard to say, he's improved every single season in Florida, and now he's in a whole better team in Vancouver, but at the same time no Campbell.

He'll probably be with Edler though so I'll bet 20 goals will be his total.

No one will touch that record for a while.

Why not? With the Sedins assisting him and such I think with his production of points in FLA could very well increase in Vancouver. We got one of the strongest power plays in the league why wouldn't his bomb be more effective here? I vote yes, though it's only in speculation.

While I respect you as a poster and commentor, I couldnt disagree more. If you watch the highlights of Garrisons goals you'll see that the assists are just simple drop passes. I have every confidence the likes of kesler and the sedins will be able to master this pass. Garrison has a very hard accurate and low shot. If anything he will get better playing with both sedins.

And what makes you think the Sedins can't do what Brian Campbell did?

I don't think that will be attainable. He may get 1st pp minutes, but his role was greater with the panthers than it will be with the nucks. We have Edler, Hamuis, Bieksa, and possibly Ballard to share top 4 minutes with. So he will have less time playing with the top line in even strength situations than he did with Florida. Also, if you look at the southeast division they allowed more goals than any other division in the league, and the Western Conference was much better in the goals against category as the east. So there is less opportunity for goals. Playing on a team with so many weapons though I do not see his overall point production dropping off from last season.

Nope. I said it when we first got him, I'll be completely happy with 10-15 as long as he does his job in his own end.
