I hope not. The Canucks, IMHO, really need to add a player who is defensively sound and can bring a physical element to their top 4 while being able to play 21-23 solid consistent minutes. I think the Canucks currently have only 3 top-4 defensemen, and it hurt us in the playoffs.

Garrision would be an ideal addition.

I think the team is best served by having Salo rotating with Tanev and Ballard (if no Garrison).

IMO the Canucks need to get bigger on the back end.
