If Garrison could move in closer and get that rocket on net it can be very deadly and that's what the Canucks need to do.
He has a big shot, but even when he's used it here...he's rarely hit the net. So that's a problem.

The other problem, is expecting him to really put up significant goal totals. He played with Campbell last year, who is one of the premier setup men on the blueline in the entire NHL. Prior to that...he wasn't exactly lighting it up offensively. Expecting that offensive outburst to continue isn't realistic. He's just not a particularly natural offensive defenceman. And that's fine if he plays solid defensively i guess.

But it's still very far from ideal that he is a Left-side only sort of guy here.
