The Vancouver Canucks have dealt Jason Garrison, Jeff Costello, and a seventh round pick to the Tampa Bay Lightning in exchange for the 2014 50th overall selection.

In Garrison, the Tampa Bay Lightning are adding a top-four blueliner that can chip in with the man advantage. He's a good bet to record 30-40 points if he can stay healthy. It's a bit surprising that the Canucks didn't get more for him though given that his $4.6 million annual cap hit looks pretty fair under the current market standards. Either way, this is a good pickup for Tampa Bay.

The Vancouver Canucks might end up dealing Jason Garrison.

Tampa Bay and Montreal have been cited as possible destination. Garrison is a top-four defenseman that blocks shots and provides about 30 points per season. The free agent market is particularly thin for blueliners and his cap hit of $4.6 million annually is fair, so if the Canucks can get him to waive his no-trade clause, then they should be able to command a high price for him.
