Among several good news this year is the stellar play of Garon dramatically increasing his trade value, so he will eventually be part of a package to fill a need, wouldn't be the least surprised if it is this coming Summer as his age/low salary/good play combination gives him great current value, but waiting an extra year might be even wiser to allow a decent replacement to develop...
That's a big 10-4 li'l buddy! I think there's a good enough vibe in the camp to keep almost everyone together for a couple of runs at the cup, and I see Garon sticking around for one more kick (even if it's as backup), then he'll be looking for a number 1 spot. Who knows what he'll be worth by then (especially with some playoff experience), and maybe we end up keeping him and trading Theo ( sniff! that was some good stuff!). By then Danis should be a polished prospect!
