What are your favorite memories of one of the best Finnish defensemen of all time?

Busting his balls and coming back to play in the playoffs quicker then it would take me to stop crying has to be my number one. What a hard-luck warrior.

Great defenseman, big part of our core. So sad to lose him, but the 3.75$ million/year is well deserved. Good for him.

My favourite was when the Canucks smartly decided to avoid doubling his salary to keep him after his play has been declining and amid injury concerns.

Aww man im so sad Salo's gone. Remember our record in the last 2 seasons with Salo in the lineup vs Salo not in the lineup...that pretty much sums up why i think we should've given him that 2year deal he was wanting. We'll miss that big shot forsure.

Really tough to loose, I loved this goal though.

Who could forget this one, to give us the lead late in the third in game 4, to even the series



Who could forget this



Then my favorite from this year




I wish Sami the best, he got a great deal in Tampa it is just unfortunate I always thought he would retire a Canuck.....

:(

You act as if he wouldn't have taken a discount to stay. Admit it - the management made a mistake. A big one. Salo is one of our best d-men.

I disagree. It is fan sentimentality that drives the local opinion of Salo. He was the best of the rest on our defense, and besides a big slapper, I don't think he was as strong a defenseman as some make him out to be. With Salo's injury concerns, I think the Canucks can improve with his departure.

I was a little kid, so I may not have the right team, but it was, I think the Blues, and I think he scored with like 0.6 seconds left. It was amazing.

I was hoping he'd retire a Canuck. :( Oh well, at least he's reunited with Ohlund. I wish both him and Ohlund the best for the rest of their careers.

The best defensively we had..

Sorely missed on the ice and in the locker room.

Tampa Bay may now come and get Lu who will then be reunited with Ohlund and Slo.

Man, i really loved Salo.

As posted, loved the great goal, the celebration, then Burrows clotheslining him!

There are a myriad of reasons for him to have left. Obviously $ was a big one. But y'know, he deserves the payday.

He was a great, great soldier for us.

It would seem that maybe with the negotiations, Salo maybe was not in the organizations plans after all.

Interesting he is going to Tampa, where Ohlie's future is in doubt. And it was one of Salo's slap-bombs that nearly halted Ohlie's career.

I will really miss him. I think his teammates will as well.

Looks like the Canuck blueline will have a bit of a facelift in free agency.

I loved going to games. Aside from cheering the team, i always shouted "I LOVE YOU SAMI SALO!!!!"

:(

Very sad to see Sami go. I'm sure they could have signed him for way less a couple weeks ago. They now have a huge hole in the defense... and no one to fill it.

This was back in 05-06 Season
Salo's first goal was waved off because Bertuzzi was in the crease. But Salo Scores again.
