Garrison's play is improving with each game. Hopefully we will start to see the player that the management gave a sweet contract to. I think we need to wait a few more weeks and see how he's looking.

He looked fantastic last night.

For a guy recovering from an injury, and learning a new system, with a new coach, and all new teammates, I haven't been disappointed so far.

From what I've seen, I wouldn't be surprised if, once he rounds into shape, we'll view his 4.6 cap hit a bargain.

Garrison is going to be a anchor on the blueline for years to come.

You mean the groin injury that occurred back in Oct? Yea that's a good excuse if he didn't show up and play in our training camp. He doesn't have an injury or was not getting over one come Jan 19th

http://www.theprovin...8437/story.html

He would have been ready to play if the season started on NOV 2nd, this injury excuse is just coming out of no where?

He easily get confused or drawn out of position in his own end plus for a guy that's supposed to have rocket shot I've seen mostly wrist shots. I agree there's still time but his decision making is not top 4 IMO

We shouldn't act like Edler, Bieksa, or even Hamhuis haven't made brutal plays like that.

It's one mistake, just move on.

This thread, as soon as I saw it, made me rest my palms in my face. I just said that, yes. I think I hear a distinctly similar story in my ear --- even of a familiar former Panther, hm. Who could it be? Oh, just a David Booth?

Coming from the East to West on a very different team with a different pairing is going to take time to adjust to, not only that does he need to settle in his skates and find his comfort zone. Being from BC, he's probably still got the butterflies from this adjustment. Besides. He hasn't been noticable, and mark my words, for a defenseman that is a good thing. He may not be that amazing 'score on every shot and a ???? god' guy we were hyping up but come on. Who really thought we were ever going to get that out of him, let alone on his first season?

Stop overreacting. Just because he's playing mediocre doesn't warrant the cries that the sky is falling. Everyone has their own time adjusting.

He hasn't been very good, let's be honest. But neither have a bunch of Canucks, so I'll give it a few more weeks.

Agreed. JG has not been good at all, but it's still very early, he's in a new system, and he is coming off an injury. He does seem to give the puck away an awful lot in the defensive zone though, the team as a whole have been struggling with the puck in their own end I feel like.

22/23 minutes is not 28.
His former d partner in Florida commands elite level minutes : Up to 25-29 minutes per game.
Then again,he also spearheads the team's offense from the back end and has four goals ,already.

Yeah, I guess that means that Gillis made a huge mistake in not signing Salo to a deal which Gillis felt was too risky for the team to take on. And I guess it also means that Garrison is no where near as good as Salo and that Gillis made a huge mistake in signing Garrison to the contract he got (with a very big home town discount)...,

... or, it could also mean that Salo plays on a team which has scored the most goals so far this season, and also has registered the highest positive goal differential, and it might also mean that Salo has been getting more ice time with the Bolts top-6 than Garrison is getting with the Canucks top-6.

G.

I think Garrison is slowly finding his feet in the team and that is to be expected. My only worry is, did GM actually watch his speed when he was being mesmerised by his "break out" year stats?

I hope I'm wrong but he looks cumbersome and a bit slow for this team.

Were not even 10 games in yet and Garrison just got cleared to play from his groin injury, plus he's still getting adjusted to a new team/system. Its a little early to start saying he's a bust. When he gets back into form and unleashes that cannon slapper of his, I think he's gonna be a valuable addition and a definite upgrade on Salo.

The same group of CDC users will always say the same thing everytime a new player joins our team, EVERY SINGLE YEAR

Players are human. They aren't a bunch of codes in nhl13 and WILL need time to adjust themselves in a new system.

This is getting really old... It's the same old crap every year with a different name in it.

Are you implying that CDC isn't filled with the greatest minds in hockey?

I think this is something that hurts him in the offensive zone too like the PP when he doesn't have the skating ability to get to open ice and hammer the puck. He seems to take a long time to wind up and get his shot off so it's no surprise that rushing it has made his accuracy abysmal.

How did he score 16 goals last year if he can't do these things?

East to West, Very different system than run & gun Panthers etc.

I haven't been overly pleased with Garrison but I'm not worried, he'll find his way.
