Willie Mitchell was signed to a $3.5mil deal under a $40mil cap. Garrison's contract represents a smaller percentage of the csap than Mitchell's when he was signed. Mitcehll was not expected to provide puck movement or any offense.

If people haven't seen the strength of Garrison over the last handful games they're just never going to like what he brings. He's been strong in his own end and providing exactly what he was signed for.
