Congrats on the cash Sami.

I'm sad now. He was probably one of my favorite Canucks.

Edit: The Canucks may be in trouble D wise. Sami held them together.

Holy overpayment.

What does Suter get? $10M?

GMillerTSN:
Sammy Salo signed a two year deal with Tampa for $3.75m per year.



WOW

Now I'm very glad he didn't re sign, and can see why both sides went the way they did.

wtf was not expecting that, our last piece from the WCE days gone. :(

He gave a lot to this franchise though, I feel bad that didn't retire a Canuck. At least he gets to re-unite with Ohlund though, wish him the best of luck with the rest of his career, hope he gets a cup before it's all set and done. Classy and respectable guy.

Money talks, but man do I feel robbed now! We wouldn't have paid him that kinda money, but I really thought he was loyal to us and wanted to commit one more time and go all the way...

That's a lot for Salo but hey, the guy has taken a couple of discounts to play here already. I hope he does well in Tampa.

Sad to see him leave but congrats to Sami. Back to back "home town discount" deals in Vancouver, time to make some money. Thanks for all you brought to the team and the best of luck to you!

I don't mind losing him at that price, considering the speculation of a lessened role with many rest days.

2 years ago if this happened my thought would be "ok, gillis obviously has a plan and already knows how he's going to replace salo." his track record since, however, makes me very, very nervous.

Wow. Our defense is now Edler, Hamhuis, and Bieksa. Granted Salo didn't have a great year, but we still relied on him as a top 4 defenseman.

Wow 3.75 per year, don't blame him for leaving. Gillis was likely offering 1.75

Pricey
And the Canucks need to get younger on D

That being said, Salo was one of the best and classiest Canucks ever. Wish him nothing but the best.

Well said, Salo was always one of my heros. He will always be one of my favourite all-time Canucks.

2 years at 3.75M is a BIG overpayment for Salo. Even one year at 3.75M would've been a bit much.

Now we have room for Weber AND a permanent spot for Tanev.
