This is only a 48 game season. Considering Salo's average 60 missed games a year due to injury, the fact that he is even playing right now is a miracle. That said, before he was an injured old man, he was a beast for us and he will always have my respect for what he brought to the nucks. It is all his years of hard work that have made him so injury prone over the last half decade.

As much as I appreciate Salo's skills it was time for him to move on. Too many injuries, and almost certain that he will have another this year, couples with the contract dollars and term.

Garrison, however, is a big strong body without the history of injuries. Has a similar offensive output ability and his best years are still ahead of him.

Overall good move my GMMG.

Sami salo is amazing. Thats that. We've always known that. He's got a great shot. He's a nice guy. Contributes quietly. He will be a great addition to any team. As for Garrison..... We are 5 games in! Give the guy a chance.

From the flashes of brilliance Garrison has shown he is >>>> Salo.


Garrison looks fine, but I don't think you were watching Sami closely enough during his time in Vancouver. On his game I put him as our #1 Dman. Amazingly smart player, superb positionally, great first pass, and THAT SHOT!

Loved Sami's game here in Vancouver. To say "Garrison >>>> Salo" is absolutely ridiculous. If anything, it is the other way around.

Good luck to both!

Oh ya?! Average of sixty missed games a year. Way to pull that number __ _ ___ __!
You claim to give him respect yet you blatantly over exaggerate his injury history. He was one of our best defenders in the past decade, quit belittling him and learn how to show respect.

Salo was a +5 the other night, even though his team allowed 4 goals. 3 points and a +8 in 4 games is incredible, but it is only 4 games. Garrison and Salo are similar players, but Garrison is more physical, younger, less injury prone, and can play more minutes.

I just moved to TB in august from Seattle area. Im a huge Canucks fan and enjoyed going to the Sens game on Fri to watch Salo back in true form. The Lightning are getting good use out of him. Your right about him being a great mentor for the younglings. Also like to note that people seem to think they know everything that goes on behind the scenes, in the locker rooms, in players heads, etc. I see his surge lately as what would happen to anybody in a new role, a new town, a new start. Maybe he was tired of all the winey Vancouver fans and got jaded after so many snarky comments about his injuries. The trade was very good for him, and Im happy for him. Was funny to here an uneducated TB fan mocking him until he scored and got a sweet assist. They will learn who he is soon enough.

Florida's heat is better for his ailing joints and isn't that where you end up retiring anyway? I say good for him, killing two birds with one stone!

If our windows is these next 2-4 years...

Salo won't last the 3 years at that level. While he may be performing better than Garrison now (although playoffs is where we will really be judging, isn't it?) at 3-4 years he will be performing much worse.

Salo would be a reason the window is closing, instead of Garrison - a reason it is staying open...

I always liked Salo, but he's gone, and it's time to move on. I'll cheer Sami on when I see him play, but otherwise, I'm rooting for Garrison and hoping he does well.

LOL You sure have a knack of smoking these guys out.

What's tomdavie rockin' with as of late? I haven't seen his shtick much this year. Scott Gomez and plummeting league revenues, ftw.

Kassian.... Taylor Pyatt 3.0

Lies. He's more of a Steve Bernier. Hopefully his talent level goes up so he can become like a Taylor Pyatt.

The ideal would of been to dump Ballard, keep Salo, sign Garrison...

Hamhuis - Bieksa
Edler - Salo
Garrison - Tanev

Another 2 assists tonight and a +1. Leading the league in plus/minus and up there in points from defencemen.

He is right now the best defenceman in the NHL. Definately worth what he's getting paid for. I'm still a believer that Garrison will turn it around but it's looking like he's a one hit wonder more and more now.

That being said, he can go pointless in the regular season, but if he shines brightly in the playoffs I will consider this move a win by MG. Garrison is far better suited to the physicality of the playoffs than Salo was. We have enough weak puck movers on this team already, we lacked a big physical guy and Garrison has done wonders already in front of our own net clearing havoc.

Letting Salo go was MG's biggest mistake. He should have retired a Canuck.

CDC fans are like children. Every time a player leaves, they become super good players that we shouldn't have let go.
We always want other people's toys.
