Pretty balanced pairings. If Tanev does enough pushups this summer to be able to hold the fort while Ballard goes wandering, that's 3 solid pairs.

I was getting bored and feeling dejected. I let the kids on the computer for an hour (which I said they weren't going to get to do today being that it was July 1st)

The boy goes to the can so I decide to to peek in and expect more doom and gloom.....

WHOOOOOOOOOOOO HOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Phew!

Giggity!

Giddyup!

He is a defensive defenseman that has been solid ever since he got the chance to play in the NHL

Do not expect the same offensive production though

Solid two-way top 4 d-man who can eat up minutes. Can play on either side. Has a very good slapshot.

He has been strong defensively the past two years, the previous one while playing with Weaver. Even if the 16 goals is an anomaly, which is probably is to a certain degree, a 25-35 point D man with a cannon on the PP and strong defensive game is worth it.

Watched a ton of Garrison over the 2nd half of this season and am fully confident he'll be a good player for us. He's the perfect replacement for Salo longterm. Replaces Sami's steady, reliable play and his slapshot as well.

Now get Doan!


Excellent news. MG salvaged the offseason.

Is Garrison physical? If he is more physical than Schultz, then I like this signing. If he's just a defensive-defenceman, then I don't know about this.

If this is our only defenceman, then I think Ballard will stay as our 3rd pairing.

Not sure if true or not but apparently there were rumours that he wanted 6 mil, so I wasn't optimistic he'd be signing here. Either way he probably would have gotten north of 5 mil per with other teams so it looks like he took a discount to come here. Welcome to VAN Garrison!

Love that he adds size to our group and that he was a solid 20+ minute guy over there.

I think he's the real deal.

Really dig the offensive potential of that back end, however that group is going to have a lot of trouble handling big physical forwards.

I like that he's still fairly young too. Only 1.5 years older than Edler and Schneider.

Not to mention he actually plays good defense.
If he can play the right, then he could be a good partner for either Edler or Ballard.
From the Florida board, they say Garrison was part of their best shutdown pair.

Hopefully he is not a one year wonder, but just based on all the information available, he seems to be a good signing.

His shot from the point is deadly. I don't doubt that he will score 10+ goals with even some pp time.

I always wondered about his defensive game/mobility.

If his defensive game is good, then this is a great signing.
