AT THE MOMENT, down in the south, the Tampa Bay Lighting are really lighting the lamp and with Sami Salo, the veteran D man who use to play for us signed a 2 year (3.7M/per year) contrast with Tampa in the off-season. He's now paired up with Victor Hedman, a 6-6 monster from the hometown of the Sedin's and BY FAR, they are on fire so far. Sami Salo's guidance and experience will help shape how Victor Hedman will be in the future.

Now what I am saying is that we made a mistake letting Salo go and signing Garrison who had only 1 good season and may not show consistency which may be a problem. So my question is, will Salo out-perform Garrison? Keep in mind they have a stacked 1st line down there.

So if Salo performs well because ​he plays with better players, we lost out? :picard:

I'd say the would be somewhere close to the same production, but Salos age and injury problems mean that in a few years Salo will have slown down, whereas Garrison should be performing at the same level.

Always loved Salo but smartly HE went after some late career money that we just couldnt gamble on going forward. I want him to do well as always been a fav but getting Garrison who could work out longer term was the right move.

Salo is +8 and Hedman is + 6 and are the top Plus/Minus leaders in the league, that is a sign of instant chemistry and teamwork. Meanwhile, Chara is +2 and so is Beregron*.

I liked Salo, but it was time for him to move on. Its great that he is grooming the young guys, its a good way to end your career and thats what the older guys should do. Is groom the younger guys coming in. Its not like Tampa Bay is going to be a daily threat to us anyways. Hedman was struggling, Ohlund wasnt helping. Meh. We have Garrison for 5 years, they have Salo for MAYBE two. Depends how long his fragile body lasts.

Well I always said Salo was our best defenseman... ...whenever he was playing.

Last year, he was making many more mistakes than he had in previous years and you could tell his skating wasn't what it used to be.

He still has the shot and he's still a reliable defender, well worth his $3.75M price tag, but I have difficulty believing this is the wrong move.

Even if he's a little better than Garrison this year (which I have difficulty believing even that), it's hard to argue that swapping 38-year-old Salo out for a 28-year-old Garrison was the wrong move given they have very similar skill sets, but one is a decade younger and isn't prone to injury.

At Salo's age I sincerely doubt he performs better than Garrison this year or anytime soon.

In terms of hockey I really think it is hard to say.

Salo may put up more points than Garrison this season. He's unlikely to do so next season, and I would argue that he's unlikely to dress for significantly more than half the games next season.

As far as I know, Garrison was signed for his defense as much or more than his offense, and if he can come up big defensively, that's more important right now than his offense. Salo's instincts are great but he's slowing down. He's not a long term choice at the money Tampa offered, not for here.

It's the right direction because Garrison is going to be a much better defender in the 2014-15 season than Salo, if he even plays.

Salo looks better now but once Garrison and Edler have completely found there chemistry it will look like a great move.
