Even though he deserves more, I would try to offer him 1.25 mil or lower. We need the capspace.

I hope someone lays out Marchand in his honour. Sami was never the same this season after that cheapshot by that little weasel.

Salo, IMO, should be played bottom pairing minutes. He's too fragile and old to play top 4 minutes next year.

Hamhuis-Bieksa
Edler-Schultz
Garrison-Salo

Dream Pairings for next year.

Then in 2013-2014, without Salo:

Edler-Weber
Hamhuis-Bieksa
Garrison-Schultz

Awesome ! 2M or less and im more then happy..

Limit his role though.. 3rd D pairing, it would be a hell of a bottom pairing. Still want somebody for Edler to play with.

I think Salo would take that if he was made out 7th d-man to switch in for the rookies sometimes.

So this means MG doesnt want to add to the D?

No offense to Sami (I love him) but if Garrison is avaliable we better make an offer, this Defense isn't good enough the way it is. We can still sign Sami if we get Garrison, and use him on the 3rd pair, and we better not blow our chances with Schultz.

I guess this means Ballard is all but gone.

Tanev and Schutlz are both RH defenseman who I don't believe play the left side.

If Schultz is signed expect Tanev to maybe be moved in a Lu deal unless MG can ship Ballard out.

Should be interesting to see...I just hope this doesn't mean bad news about Schultz.

Hopefully we still can get Garrison and Schultz, and then I guess Ballard will be gone even though I think he could be better next year.

Hopefully we see something like this:

Hamhuis - Bieksa
Edler - Garrison
Schultz - Salo
Tanev

I don't agree based on his play, but for this team to be a peak contender you're probably right.

exactly

if we do sign schultz that makes tanev "expendable" if you will.....we could go after ryan, weber or any other high priced talented players

Great news!

The problem has never been having Salo as a 6-7 guy. The problem was insisting on him playing top 4 minutes. If we ask him to he will play the best 15 minutes for 65 games we could ask of any veteran.

/Nice thread, Sam. Nice thread.

Averaging 20 minutes a game, I do NOT want Salo back.

Yes, he has had a great career and I'm glad he's a Canuck, but I am going to be thoroughly disappointed if he's Edlers partner again logging 20 minutes a game.

First Raymond, now Salo... The team needs to try some new players in these roles, not relying time and time again on the guys that haven't really added anything come playoff time (especially this past playoffs, where Salo DID start showing his age).
