Absolutely not. If you're acquiring a guy you know is a poor puck mover and is not going to contribute significantly to the offence, then you don't pay him 4.6m for the next 6 years. To reiterate my original point, I'm not saying Garrison can't do these things, but to say that the canucks would sign a player to this contract without believing those were abilities he posessed is difficult to support.
