Garrison was brought in to upgrade the defense, not Salo or Ballard specifically. We still would have signed him IMO even if Salo returned.

It's relevant because it shows we will pursue upgrades if they're out there, regardless of how the players salaries compare to others in similar roles. Similarily, if there is a forward upgrade out there that can be signed for $4.6mil, you do it. As we saw with the pursuit of Shane Doan.
