While they didn't have any further news on Edler, this is the first I've heard of Raymond saying he was ready to play:

Apart from Luongo, winger Mason Raymond couldn't get back in the lineup, either. He has overcome a career-threatening back injury and his 40 goals the last two seasons put him behind only Henrik and Daniel Sedin, Ryan Kesler and Alex Burrows.

Two weeks ago, there were a half-dozen candidates to come out of the Canucks lineup. Saturday, Vigneault couldn't find any, so Raymond sat after finally telling staff he was ready to go.

As long as Salo's not breaking bones and tearing muscles it's actually not a bad thing for him to sit a few games here and there. Clearly he's not suited to play 82+ games per season. Better that he sits now and then is healthy for the post season. He's so steady that it's tough when he doesn't play. But in the long run it may just pay off.
