Are you seriously not going to see that as a major failure and a "crash and burn?"

And,I would take Garrison over Bieksa anyday.
You are vastly underestimating Bieksa. Sure, he is prone to more gaffs than preferable, but this is a guy who in a bad year was on pace to score 14 goals and 14 assists. Additionally, he was injured throughout a decent portion of it. In a five year span, with that as his worst performance. He ought to be given credit.

Bieksa's issues are consistency and extremes. When he is bad, he's bad. In comparison, when he's good, he is a terrific top four defenseman and formed one of the best shutdown pairings in the west.
