I would be more worried about Garrison if I hadn't watched so much of him in Florida last season. He's still not at the top of his game and if I had to bet, he'll get there sonner than later.

I'm more concerned about Bowness and how he handles this defense. This is not a dynamic, offensively gifted group. It might be time to adopt a simpler, less aggressive game from the backend. We need to play to the strengths of the personnel...
How did his skating last year compare to now, if you remember? I still suspect he's not over that groin issue he had during the lockout...

Also agree about simplifying the system. The lack of a training camp doesn't help, but you'd think they would want to alleviate that problem by making things simpler for the D, especially when it usually takes new guys so long to adjust.
