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.

. I agree 100% well said bud

Who cares, Salo doesn't play here anymore, and Garrison is a plug.

If the past is anything to go by, Sami will outperform most of the NHL in the number of injuries. The season is only a few games in and it is a short season so he may be a bit safer this season but wait till he has to pay a full season.

Go Canucks Go.

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*.


4 games = too small a sample size. I'll be interested to check back in with this thread at the halfway point.

He just had an amazing game, on ice for all 6 goals scored, registered 2 assists as well while Garrison really hasn't done much for the Canucks at all yet. I wouldn't be surprised if Garrison was just a one-hit-wonder to be honest, you don't just dish out long, expensive contracts for one good season.

Garrison > Salo in the long run though.

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.


Love Sami. My favorite player and extremely hard to see him go - and I hope he rocks in Tampa and they obviously needed him considering he landed two years and is playing on their top pairing. Love it, but I'm not going to engage in this Garrison vs Salo thing. Under the last CBA the 35+ risk (cap hit counts regardless) was a hard one for a contender to take - Tampa on the other hand isn't up against the cap. I'm not going to engage in this Salo vs Garrison thing - Sami is a stud who will produce nicely in Tampa - Garrison willl produce just fine for a long time. Seems to me he's leading the Canucks right now at +3 - not surprising though - they guy is a solid two way top four blueliner.

Best of luck Sami.

no one will take it away form Sami that he is a very reliable dman (when healthy) has a bomb of a shot and smart defensively. The problem was his age and his health. He couldn't stay healthy and when he was he couldn't catch up to guys often taking bad penalties. regardless the Canucks still wanted him back but TB gave him some nice money to go live under the sun. Miss Sami and wish him well.

I liked Sami in a Canucks uniform, but I think he wanted little more stability in a 2 year contract and the Canucks were only willing to give him a 1 year contract (like last year). Wish him well. He is all class.

I miss Salo but it is too early to come to any conclusions and he is not outperforming Garrison. :picard:

I was going to say that Swedish Viking is King of the BS but then I saw he was defending Kassian. So either it is the same guy and he's defending Kassian to throw us off or this really is someone else. This does sound like a typical King of the BS post

Can someone who makes dumb posts with little substance and no logic look at mine above and make sure I nailed it? Or did I forget the "OMGZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ" again?

Sami went there to tell Hedman how great Vancouver is!

and as far as Garrison goes,
he wanted to be a Canuck and he took less money to play here, nuff said!

I really wanted to just type "LOL" and press post, but let me give you a real answer

Sami Salo is 38.
Jason Garrison is 28.


+1

I really like Salo and I was sad about MG letting him go, but it's in the team's best interest.

I noticed how your entire post engaged in the "Garrison vs. Salo thing" despite you explicitly claiming to avoid it twice.

This thread is ridiculous. Loved Salo. Time to move on. Just like Ohlund.
Money. Age. Injury Risk.

He was still good, but was beginning to show his age. And that's when he WAS healthy.

Sorry to see Salo go but he couldn't be counted on to stay healthy. Garrison might be a one hit wonder but he is much younger and most likely more durable.

I hope not, I picked Garrison over Salo as one of my late picks in my hockey pool. I need him to step up!

I really hate these trade comparisons between players because there's no real way to know for sure how things would have panned out if you hadn't done the trade.

It's like trading in an older car that's still running - sure, your new car is presumed to be "better" at that moment but you got a lot of mileage out of the old one so it's also served you well. There's no way of knowing how long your original car is going to last and it requires some $$ to keep it running so you decide based on what you think may happen. But that's not to say there aren't some good miles left in the old car. (Sorry, Sami, for comparing you to a car...in my mind, you'll always be a classic).

I was hoping (like Geroy/Lions), that Sami would retire a Canuck but also understand and reluctantly accept why that isn't happening.
