I don't know anything about him, but on paper he looks good.
I'd be wary of him. My feeling is that he is a product of being paired with Campbell, whereas before, his numbers weren't that great nor was his play.

Think of it like this...

Every time I watched Florida play in the regular season AND the play-offs, whenever Garrison was in the line up, he was never the primary threat. The primary threat was always Campbell. I hesitate to back the truck up for any player that didn't display above average-ness when they were considered the primary threat.

We all hated on Zidlicky for the same reason. Garrison would be Zidlicky 2.0. Without a primary threat to draw the attention of opponents, Garrison would put up relatively low numbers.

Would he have been an upgrade over what we had last year? Sure. Will he be the cog which makes our blue line not suck? No.
