I don't doubt that. And I'm happy we were in the mix until the very end. I'm not begrudging Gillis trying, and failing, to land the most coveted defenceman on the market last season.
But Garrison is redundant, despite being a great player signed to a friendly cap hit. The top 4 D pairings have not looked good at any point (quite frankly they've been a mess all season), and having 3 natural left side LHD with 1 RHD is the exact, specific reason for that.
Unless we can get a good PMD signed to an ELC for a few more years, who plays the right side and could score 40 points with Edler, it was a poor decision and a bit mystifying.
