if we signed Salo to the same 3.75 he signed for in Tampa (granted, he would've accepted less to stay, probably 2-2.5 million), it might have made it difficult to sign Garrison. I love Salo and I'll miss him for sure, but it might have been for the best. Similar to the Ohlund situation. Best of luck to Salo in Tampa.

If Salo resigned he wouldn't be on the team anyway.

Stubborn? You realize if Salo resigns, that's an over-35 contract, which means the cap hit stays on past his retirement.

3.0-3.75M to spend on nothing is stupid. Gilis made the right move by letting salo go if he was asking for a multi-yr deal.

Gillis did the right thing to walk away from a 3+ million dollar deal for Salo. That's overpayment at its finest. I just hope he can get rid of Ballard's contract and sign Carle or Colaiacovo now.

I dont like the name calling around here, but I will say your flat out wrong.

Salo would have been ok as a bottom pairing, but not for 3.75, anyone who thinks different needs to give their head a shake.

I love salo, but im glad hes gone, our blue line needs to get bigger and stronger and tougher, salo was a fringe top 4 guy, he is very good player when he wants to play and is not injured, but he also was not physical and getting older, if we can move ballard i would like one more big strong bottom pairing d men to play with tanev.

Gillis made the right choice. Playing a big strong hard hitting team like the kings, did not make salo look good at all.

I doubt we would have signed Garrison if we had shelled out $3.75 million on Salo.

I liked Salo, but even after all he did for us, that is too much money.

Good riddance. Time for change. I'd rather see us find a quality forward for 3.75m than an aging, injury prone 5-6 dman.

No,Bieksa's salary is over payment.

Salo made two lousy million dollars last year and Bieksa made 4.5 million in bonuses,alone, and $11.5 million in total pay.

Two million dollars and he led the team in points(edit:PP goals,my bad) for D men,logging up to 25 minutes a night at his age.

Nothing like rewarding your veterans with a proper pay day for their allegiance and the fact they were already GIllis hosed.

What a joke.

He sort of did resign... But if he re-signed, then what you are saying would make more sense
