Hard to compare when Salo was the skating wounded a lot of the time, so Lumme was either luckier or more durable.
Both were solid d-men.
Lumme was a 30 to 50 point d-man. (55 points being his career high), spent 8 seasons with the Canucks.
Salo 9 seasons, career high 37 points, great slap shot, but injuries always seem to derail him.
I think Lumme was better on all parts of the ice, but Salo was a reliable d-man who could put up points if he wanted as well. Salo did play more in the dead puck era so is it fair on the numbers?
