Wow

Love Salo but that is an overpayment.

Good luck Sammi.


No it isn't.

Salo>Wideman

If Salo wasn't regularly injured he would be more than $5 million per

I'm not pissed at Gillis for not signing Salo, but he needs to make up for this by signing another Top-4 defenseman. It become even more important now.

I guess suddenly a defenceman is now the required return for Luongo....

Either that or tendering an offer sheet to Weber has to happen SOON!

Damn, one of the better trades back in the day: Shaeffer for Salo was a great deal for the Canucks, even if Sami never played a full 82. Salo was the longest serving member of the Canucks (after the Sedin's) and will be missed.

Best of luck Sami, hopefully you can manage a full 82 in one of those 2 years with Tampa! I'll miss the hell out of that wicked slapshot from the point too!!!

By the way learn how to spell SHIRIKOV who is this shirakov


Amazingly on his first shift Kassian would have had a breakaway if Kesler knew how to pass. And he still got switched with Weiss. And note it is "Weiss" not "Wise".

Gillis not only threw away a Top 4 defenseman, but also one booming shot on the power play. Way to go there Gillis. I wish I had faith he'd be able to pull of a major signing in return but he;s going to need to stop sitting on his flipping hands already and do something (something other than not signing people that is).

huge blow to the Nucks defense and PP. Salo was such a huge cog in the wheel of this team. Very sad to see him go.
Our top 4 defense looks very average right now. :(
Do we know for sure that Gillis did not sleep through his alarm this morning?

Good luck Sammy!

And nice deal out of captain Stevie for ya. On the over 35 rule, few teams are willing to shell out two year deals (especially at big money).

Makes Garrison, or alternate, a priority as we only have one legitimate right side D, Bieksa, under contract.

I say offer Souray two years at $7 mill? Souray > Salo!

Indeed.

I think you are on to something tangible(excuse the (MacGuireism) .

Maybe not Weber...but something is in the works for a D-man.

Looks like Tanev is going to be leaned upon this year to step up and play some minutes with Salo gone.

Why on Earth would they do that???

Just because you can post any random thought that enters your head doesn't mean it's a good idea to do so.


Random thought? He's one the longest serving in canucks franchise. Plus his stats......

nevermind, u probably is one of those young bandwagoners.. :picard:

Souray's calling card was a bomb like Salo's...and he is excellent around the corners/boards, that is really about it.

Sami could skate well, make a great 1st pass, was uncannily exceptional in breaking up cycle plays, and had a good instinct in when to be offensive.

Just sad. Nobody I would rather have seen lift the cup in Canucks colours. Pressure is on now, Gillis. Our defense is looking weak and the most solid free agents are getting snapped up.

I made this thread and I was sad now im really sad/pissed. Salo and Burrows were my 2 favorites.... This sucks :(

We have to get Garrison now...... Gillis better get this deal done..... Toss money at the kids face now, he is going to get it somewhere might as well be here. Overpaying a little is better then not spending to the cap.

From the looks of it, teams are really addressing their needs this year through free agency. Size, gritt, and defense seem to be the key factors at play.

Detroit has just signed Samuelsson, TooToo, Gustavsson and are appearing to be the front runners in the West for Parise and Suter. Any other major signing could really affect the power structure in the West. From the looks of it, teams in the West are really starting to round out their lineups.

I hope Gillis has a plan because so far out of all the major contenders, Vancouver is the only team not to have made any signings.

With Salo and Rome gone we are -2 from yesterday in terms of our defensive depth. Any deal MG makes is really going to need to make the ground shake.

Hamhuis-Bieksa
Edler- ????
Ballard-Tanev
Alberts-Gragnani

With Alberts and Gragnani as our only depth defensemen we won't be making it very far this year. Starting to wish we had kept Sulzer.

I'm starting to get worried.

really disappointed that we didnt offer enough for Salo, a great defenceman and I really wanted him to lift the cup in a Van jersey. Hopefully he gets inducted into the ring of honor when he retires, i hope.

Kassian will be a Beast

The Canucks did not tender an offer to Grags. He is a UFA and the Canucks obviously have no desire to bring him back.
