The biggest reason we have Garrison (and so cheap) is because he is a BC boy with a connection to the team (MayRay). Could you imagine if we didn't get Garrison? We would still be missing that top 4 dman & I don't think Gillis would have overpaid a UFA to fill that.... however in the Luongo trade who knows?!?!

You're right Gillis does have balls & sometimes it really backfires. Gillis could have just dumped Ballard & kept Ehrhoff in reality.
