Yeah Garrison was kinda horrible defensively and his shot missed way too much.mathonwy wrote:I haven't done the numbers so I'll take your word on that.Nuckertuzzi wrote:mathonwy wrote:Ok... I'm going to say it.
I wish we still had Garrison.
It comes down to would you rather have Miller or Garrison. Salary had to be moved to get the former and we get a 22 y.o. forward with a bit of potential in the exchange. Still have to trim a bit more salary to make it all work but this is an excellent exchange if you're on the camp that wants to see us in the playoffs this year (not that we'll get there).
I'm personally not sorry to see Garrison go. I think his defensive game is pretty overrated as he looked lost quite often last year. But to be fair he had a lot of company.
Instead of Miller, how about Vokoun at 2? Or Hiller at 4.5? Or Brodeur at 4.5? (assuming he'll come out to the west).
This is one of the reasons why I am unhappy with the Miller signing. There's no reason to tie up 6M in net considering the state our team is in.
Vokoun hell no,
as for Hiller, Miller at same age on a much shittier team has twice as many wins in the regular season & playoffs, and they're almost making the same amount of money? smh
Brodeur he needs to retire.
