Well... Good job Gillis, you've possibly lost one heart and soul Canuck, and brought in zip. Glad to see we want a cup.


Brought in zip? Did I sleep through the offseason and not even know it?

Again, the Canucks tried to lowball one of their players. First, Willie Mitchell was denied a multi-year deal. Now the Canucks lose Salo for the exact same reason.

The greatest segue into a weather segment.

3.75 million is a LOT for Salo. Upon further review, makes sense not to resign him

If confirmed, that's a great sign for Tamba, and a terrible loss for the Canucks. Salo was the d-man who kept our defense together, the team sucked after he got that concussion.

Wish him all the best!

If you think about it...he's been our best, most consistent defenceman for the last decade. When was the last time you watched a game and you said "Damn Salo is having a horrible game"


Best of luck Sammy, your services will not be forgotten.

Tampa loves overpaying our defencemen when they are past their prime I guess. 3.75 is too much for Sami.

Well, he certainly deserves that money. Sami will always be a Canuck; one of my favourites. I hope he does well in TB, but I'm going to miss the hell out of him.

Bring on Suter, Gillis! DO IT.

totally agree although i wouldnt have minded jvr in a 3 way.
