Seems like he was rumored to be going to Vancouver forever.

Dennis. Wideman.

That's a big commitment to Garrison, but he's going to a better team. He could be paired with Edler. And he'll get playing time on a power play that features the Sedins and Kesler so there's serious potential for him to match or exceed his Florida numbers.
Wouldn't be shocked if he potted 20 goals on that PP.

I'm curious to see who offered him "Wideman" money.

Martin is a salary dump at this stage. He could have a career revival but... he may just be one of those Devils free agents who bombs elsewhere.

Garrison is a good player, but his deficiencies may have been covered up in Florida like Bouwmeester and Ballard.

Well the Canucks have a great PP, but keep in mind, he doesn't have Campbell at the point with him anymore.

That's goign to be a pretty significant dump. Michalek was easy to move because Phoenix wanted him back and he played pretty well last year. Martin was awful and he has a bigger ticket. As Marc Crawford might say, "he's headed to the island of misfit toys" (line of the day)

He doesn't need it. The Sedins will create space for him at the points. Vancouver runs that half ice/overload PP anyways. The PPQB is set up along the walls.

Yes but I see that change as canceling out, not necessarily an increase.

Well, imo, Henrik Sedin is a greater PPQB than Brian Campbell. Plus their PP is set up along the half wall, which creates space at the point. Garrison plays the right side on the PP. Your going to see a ton of passes from right corner to Garrison's point next year.

Defenders are going to be sucked more to cover the corner. Even if they do not(leaving one man high), that is going to give more space to Henrik. Works out either way.

If Vancouver ran a shooting/box PP, then you would have a point. Those PP's rely more on point mobility/shifting from the Dmen. It requires your PPQB, usually, to be a D man on one of your points.

Please get Taylor Pyatt so we can inject speed into the fourth line. So we don't have a bunch of useless ****ing traffic cones lumbering around.

I think they are going to promote one of the kids. My Gut tells me Rupp is going to be dumped some time this year.

I was hoping our 4th line was going to be something like Pyatt-Boyle-Tootoo rather than Asham. I would think with the prices today that Pyatt and Tootoo would be wanting more than we are willing to pay.

Well, if the third line is the BAR line(which it may be), then its fine. But the 4th line is pretty mediocre atm.

The good news is Boyle looks like he is going to be pushed down the depth chart.

I still think that 4th line will be influx most of the season.

Patience. This team needs a D or two and one more winger. Of the wingers who fit what we need, only one was taken off the grid today, and he wasn't even my top choice.

I don't see any Dman who is left in FA that addresses our needs in our D core. At least not any who can act as a legit triggerman on our PP. Couple guys can play RD in the FA market, but they may as well keep Strahlman and hope for Sauer to get back in the lineup. I really don't see a trade for one.

I honestly think the Dman situation will be handled internally this season. But they absolutely have to address a top 6 winger. They can't twittle their thumbs about that.

i recall the time when not signing 3rd and 4th line UFAs was what we always hoped for so our kids could get a real crack at breaking into the lineup.

I used to think I knew a lot about GMs and how the business worked...

And then Sheldon Souray got an 11 million dollar contract today.

Speaking of which, can you guys imagine what Stahlman could get in this market?
