That and the fact I think Garrison and Hjalmarsson are near identical players.

Yeah, that hesitation to move Bieksa for NH says it right there.

Garrison plays heavies and has that great shot. These are distinct facets NH doesn't have. IMO, that's what holds NH back from that class of player. I value Garrison more.

Tanev, when he reaches his potential, I hope rounds out to be like NH.
