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.

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.

I'll agree if Salo was injured free most of his Career as a Canuck ,But he hasn't been. Last year if it wasn't for Marchant we probably would have seen a healthy Salo for the first time in a long time. And Yes I'll agree that Vancouver got their money worth on Salo last year on that 2 million deal.
And what did he make before that when he was injured for 3/4 of a season? 3.5 MILLION for a quarter of a season of hockey!!!Do you think that was a great investment for the hockey team in a cap era? You think any other gm like Nonis or Burke would have done any differently by giving him a one year 2 mill deal? Sorry hockey is a business. Tell me are you really going to pay a player that only been playing half a season because he been prone to injuries and age? Its no longer about Loyalty.
So if Mike paid Salo the money you think he deserves and he was injured more then half a season would you be jumping on Management for giving him that much? Would YOU be complaining if Burke was still a GM? Remember the man who" I will drive him to the airport myself " or another one would have been" I'm not going to pay another penny more."
You mention about rewarding your veterans.. That's fine. Would you be complaining if Gillis ends using that money for a younger defencemen? When should Gillis reward our prospects when a roster spots open up? I'm not saying your wrong I Do understand what your getting at but if we have prospects that are ready and developed then why not try and get younger?

Nuh uh

Salo is fine and all but at 3.75 he's a risk given his age and his history.

I'm going to miss Salo, but he's past his prime. Besides being injury prone, Edler now has the hardest shot on our team, which is what Salo was known for throughout his tenure with the Canucks.

Gillis made the right move, and Salo gets to rejoin Öhlund in Tampa Bay at the very least.

Gillis made the right move again, just like he did with Ohlund. Let an aging, injury ravaged defenseman go and bring in a younger, faster Dman.

It was time to give our defense a new look. As much as I love our boy Salo, it was good for both sides that he moved on. He's making some pretty good coin with TB which is nice to see.

Edler - Garrison
Hamhuis - Bieksa
Ballard - Tanev

Alberts is our 7th, with Connauton and Sauve hopefully being able to get a few games in as well.

Looks pretty good to me. Ballard's contract doesn't bug me as much anymore after seeing what some of these FA's have been gettting this offseason.

How could Bieksa make $4.5m in bonuses when he's not even eligible for bonuses? So where did you see this $11.5m for Bieksa garbage? Just to enlighten you, only entry level contracts can have bonus packages. This is Bieksa's third contract. Or two past his entry level deal.

His five year deal is broken down as follows:
7 + 4.5 + 5 + 4 + 2.5 = 23m
23/5 = 4.6m cap hit

Although a team can call money a signing bonus it has to be included in the cap hit. So I'll ask again: Where is this 11.5m BS of yours come from? Drunk, dreaming, or just plain pulling crap out your arse again?

Upset to see him go, but that's the way the cookie crumbles.

He was our best most consistent and underrated defensemen. I'm truly gonna miss him, the core players from when I first started liking the Canucks in the early 00's is slowly disappearing.

Good luck Salo and I hope you win a cup Posted Image TB fans are VERY lucky, enjoy the boomer of a shot and a steady well positioned defensemen.

It's funny how many last summer thought Salo should retire. Fast forward one year and suddenly so many are pissed that he's signed with another team.

Honestly, I can understand Gillis only wanting to sign him year by year at this point. He'd be a great depth d-man at this point but given his age and injury history I wouldn't sign him for more than one year either.

Capgeek.You are such an enlightening mass of humanity,Baggins.When it says 7m salary and 4.5 m bonus I count $11.5.Maybe it is 4.6 and a 2.4 signing bonus but ,whatever.I just read it,I don't write it.
http://capgeek.com/p...play.php?id=663

Bieksa's deal was for five years at $23 million, a cap hit of $4.6 million. That's $1.1 million more than he made last year, but he said he was willing to take a hometown discount in order to re-sign. Plus, a significant signing bonus means he will make $7 million next season.
