I put it around 50-50 he re-signs with Florida. He plays against the league's toughest competition (see the player usage chart BlueDream linked yesterday, also a thread on main forum) and has for a couple years now while excelling at it. This year he developed a slapshot to go along with the defense, positioning, and size he brings. The accuracy of that shot may vary from year to year but the velocity won't. It's one of the hardest shots in the league. He would be a power play weapon that other teams would have to respect and defend, creating a ripple effect of opportunity for other guys on the unit.

For the $$ and not having to trade a significant asset (as the Blues would, for example, to get Giordano), Garrison is the perfect target on the market. He is so vastly superior to Bryan Allen I don't know where to begin.
