I believe he only signed a one year contract this past off season. If this was his last game I wish him all the best. He's been one of our best defenders when healthy and is a stand up guy.

Man, I hope not. I love Salo. Class act and a great player. We'd miss him a ton

I feel like crap right now, but i feel even worse for Salo. Playing in his 1000th game and we get knocked out in the 1st round.

He's been one of the most underrated players in the past decade, a class act and is a rock for us for a long time.

Sadly, I think we need to move on, asking for another healthy year from a 38-39 yr old man is too much. We've got some offensive defenceman in the farm thats ripe and ready for action. We need to get some youth in the team.

When? And for us? because he JUST said that "I dont know, I dont wants going on in the off season, and I dont know where I will be going" (in a really sad voice).

CBC mentioned he will play, but he doesn't know where. In other words, if MG wants to sign him again he will play for us.

Well, last year, MG DID say that he wanted to sign Sami to a couple year deal, but sami wanted only 1 apparently, so heres hoping he will sign again!

I'd rather Sami retire while he's still healthy.

I know I would love to see him suit up for another season, but I just do not want to see him go down again.

A leader on the backend and a class act. The guy is great when healthy, one of the most under-rated defenders in the game IMO

Sounds like he's coming back, with us or someone else. Actually quite happy with his play this season. I wouldn't mind bringing him back just as long as its in a 5-6 role and not top 4. We need to retool the defense.

You know he has the heart of a warrior though. To come back from all those injuries. So no surprise he wants to play again next year I guess.

Hopefully it will be with us, we can trade Raymond, and sign Salo for longer years!

It better not be his last game. He played awesome, especially in the playoffs. We actually saw him hitting people, he was that hardcore....

I'll be getting his shirt if he stays with us!!! Good thing I got my Canuck shirt autographed by him :)! MG, PLEASE make a GOOD signing, and RE-SIGN SAMI SALO. TRADING Coho was a bad enough choice, but losing OUR #1 D MAN, that IS NOT a good choice!!!!!!!!!!!
