Maybe the best trade Burke made during his time as GM of the Canucks was acquiring Salo. I think it's clear he gave this franchise a hometown discount several times throughout his career and was just looking for some security at this late stage of his career. A classy guy, I wish him well.

All in all I'm glad there are no hard feelings on either side. Good for Sami that he has found a great deal and good for us that we are moving on. While Tampa needed some defensive help and aging defenceman have worked out pretty well for some teams it was obvious that he didn't fit in exactly right with what we have on defence now.

he did but I'm assuming he signed with them first after MG probably told him that their going to go after Garrison


Gillis offered Salo a raise with a portion paid up front as a signing bonus. He also promised that he'd offer one year contracts as long as he wanted to play. Salo wanted the guaranteed two year deal. Gillis wanted both Garrison and Salo on the team.

Good luck in Tampa Sami!

I was really sad to hear the news but I'm sure you will help out the bolts a ton in the two years you are there.
