Now the Sens are on a budget, so they can't spend money on just anybody. Garrison was a 1st pairing defenseman on a playoff team, and would be 1st pair on the Sens barring major improvement from Cowen.

Tell me, why (why) you want to spend $3M on Methot, but not $5M on Garrison? Garrison is certainly worth $2M more than Methot, even if $5M is overpayment. If we're gonna overpay and spend big money, it should be on good players, not mediocre players.

This isn't even considering Methot would have to be traded for and would require giving up an asset.
Because Columbus is shedding money and this is being done if we don't get Garrison.

Which, by the way, we won't be!!!
