[Report] Blues show some interest in Jason Garrison

Recommended Posts

Blues show some interest in Jason Garrison:

Earlier today, we passed along notes about St. Louis Blues GM Doug Armstrong’s hopes of adding a top-four defenseman. Jeremy Rutherford reports that they have at least some interest in a guy who would fit that description: pending Florida Panthers free agent Jason Garrison.

Armstrong noted that it would be more likely that the Blues will trade for a free agent blueliner rather than signing one, but that doesn’t mean Garrison wouldn’t fit. After all, they could always acquire his rights before July 1 – which might be just fine with Florida if they decide that his contract demands are excessive.

We can debate Garrison’s merits in his own zone all day, but it’s hard not to gravitate toward his booming slap shot. He might be a mph or five below Zdeno Chara in that category, yet for a Blues team that struggled on the power play, Garrison’s shot could be quite the tonic.

Of course, it’ll all come down to the price being right – both in trade and contract terms. Still, it’s interesting to ponder. How well do you think he’d fit in St. Louis?

He could warrant a 4 or 4.5 million dollar deal, but he had one good season on a team that thrives on having their defence jump up in the rush, very similar to Vancouver.

This guy caught lightning in a bottle offensively, but he's a big physical presence which is what we need more of. 3.5 million for 2 years sounds right.
