Which defenseman has met expectations so far though? Maybe Tanev? Ballard has looked OK but he's also getting soft minutes and has still racked up a ton of minor penalties.

Like I said above, Garrison is getting singled out because he has no history with the team. If what we've seen so far this year was all we knew of Bieksa or Hamhuis people would be dreading having them tied up long term as well. People naturally put their play in context of what they've seen in the past and give them some leeway. And those guys aren't even getting used to a new team and system yet they're still playing some of their poorest hockey in the last couple of years.
