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).
So we should get rid of Edler too, right? Edler was horrid in the playoffs last year, that means we should dump him according to your logic... Kesler was pretty bad, let's get rid of him too, matter of fact nobody was very good apart from the Sedins, Luongo and Schneider, so why don't we dump the whole team.
Salo has been a mainstay on the Canucks blueline for a reason. He's not flashy or speedy, but he's dependable and can still shoot the puck when he needs to. Very sound positionally, our best d-man defensively apart from Hamhuis. If he wants to come back, it'd be crazy not to sign him.
