Giving Salo a reasonable offer at Salo's history and age is not low ball.
Your version of truth is also not realistic.
Yzerman paid him $4 million this year (with a million signing bonus) and $3.5 next season and Gillis paid him $2 million last year.
I am thinking Yzerman is not a fool to be able to run a successful NHL club and he paid Salo double what Gillis gave him last year.
Salo led the Canucks in PP goals scored by a d man last year and he did it at 37 years of age in 69 games played.
Bieksa got two PP goals in 78 games.
Hamhuis got one in 82 games.
Sami scored seven PP goals and three game winners which are both more than any other Canucks D man.
Only Hank,Dan and Kes scored more PP goals and only Higgins,Clutch ,Hank and Dan scored more GWG's.
Gillis paid Sami $2 million dollars last year,which is why I stated Gillis hosed Sami.
This year's Gillis job on Sami is another issue for another day.
