He was a greater risk to poach than Petey.

 

Nice work Jimmy.

kind of, if a team offered this contract and we walked away we would get a 1st and 3rd round pick from said team. Better return than he would net on his own via trade imo. Hope Garland becomes our version of Gallagher...don't think he gets into the rough stuff consistantly like Gally but I have no idea, never really watched the guy just figured with him being near the top of scoring for the team that the Yotes were in a world of trouble if Garland is leading the way...now he is ours so I hope he bursts onto the scene and outplays this contract ala Burrows and his 4yr 8m deal we had him on for a while

I watched his highlight video, and got giddy. Garland's got SO much drive. It'll be fun to see someone else work hard for the Canucks

Yes thats true but he can't score empty net goals.

Glad they locked him up long term, 5 or 6 years is what I was hoping for, I think 5 is pretty much perfect. And it's a good AAV aswell, fair value for both. 

 

If he's as important for us as he was for Arizona, might even be great value ala Miller/Horvat. 

 

Awesome all around.

He will easily outplay that contract. Was thinking he would be 5+ mil buying UFA years, creates a lot of cost certainty and certainty for Bo, that he has a legitimate RW for the next 2 years and potential few years afterwards should he resign.

 

Good piece of work with this contract.

 

Now get Pettersson signed before FA begins...I'd like to sleep soundly not having to wake up to find out an offer sheet is coming for the rest of the summer.

I assume you meant re-sign not resign?

Buying his 25 -30 year old seasons, much better than 30-35 like he has done in the past. Good fair deal.  

Yes but you have to remember that when he was signing those other deals our core was younger and still growing. He surrounded them with guys that could carry them and teach them how to be NHLers. Benning was buying time.
 

Now the core is a bit more mature and needs to be surrounded by complimentary players that can fill in the missing gaps. Now Benning is filling in a competitive roster.
 

I’m not saying every move has been perfect but if you look at the progression of this team over the past few years, from a high level, it makes sense. Last year was an anomaly because of many reasons (covid, expansion, crappy schedule, etc) but if you look past it, you can see a larger plan.

This contract will define JB going forward and will put him at either hero or goat territory. Fired or rehired. He has signed some painfully contracts, forced some buyouts. If this ends up a dud, JB is done. I for one like it and to be honest he plays a style that we need more than Taffoli. Welcone Garland, I think you will be a fan favourite soon enough.

Utilizing that cap for a top pair D and top 6 forward instead of bottom 6 or pressbox = priceless

For everything else there is MasterCard.....  :)

I was expecting something 3.5-4M but the important thing is that it is done.

 

5M for Garland makes me think 7M for Pettersson is not gonna cut it tho.

 

5 years I like. We’ll have a core group intact for several years and I for one believe this is our season to get back in the hunt for the cup.

Not gonna lie, I was hoping for something closer to Pearson's contract. But this works. If he can maintain his play from last season this is a very fair deal. He's still very much young too. So he has room to grow if there's anymore potential to squeeze outta him.

Hmm it's $500,000 too high I think. Also not sure if this is a steal considering Anthony Duclair's extension and only a millon less than Taylor Hall?

And on the bright side of this deal....................he's young, he's been a point producing forward everywhere he plays, HE WANTS TO BE HERE

Solid deal for a player just entering his prime. Nice lil pay raise for Conor too wow. Let's hope he comes in next year and gets at least 25 goals.

And he doesn't have any NTC or NMC so that helps
