Guess we're all in on Suter. I see Mat Carle going quick now.

I'd rather have Matt Carle than Garrison, myself. Quite a payday for a breakout year.

Bit of a gamble for a player with 1 good year. Let's hope he turns out like the other Dmen that they got from Florida ... Ballard ... haha. :tounge:

Garrison wanted to go to Vancouver. He took a discount; other teams offered him more money. It's unlikely that the Wings would have been able to land him, short of offering him a deal he couldn't reasonably refuse.

Which would have been a mistake because he could be a one hit wonder.

What was the reason Florida couldn't retain him? Money? Well if that is the case they signed old man Kuba (36) to 4 million per year. Garrison is only 27 and got .6 million more. Seems like an odd choice. Granted he could be a "one hit wonder" but what does Florida have to lose?

He turned down a larger offer from Florida because he wanted to play in Vancouver.

May be a good move could be a bad move I would have liked to bing him in on a two year deal to see what kind of d man he really is

Will Mr. Garrison be bringing Mr. Slave with him to Vancouver?

Vancouver just got a little (emphasis on little) less douchier.

He's got serious potential. Oh well. Bring Suter in, Ken!
