His rumoured asking price is 3.0M - 3.5M
Where is that coming from?
From what I've read here (yeah I know, but still) he is lookin 1 mil more than what you suggested.
But I could take a shot at him if it's short and for 3-3,5 mil. No more money and not many years. I wouldn't want to give a big contract for a guy who just had a career year on a contract year and basically no one had ever heard about him before.
But if (big one) Garrison plays on Joe Louis next year, it probably means that Suter sweepstakes has been lost and found no top #2dman. And I don't think Garrison is enough for that job and that's the biggest problem here on blueline, imo.
