Fun fact-Mario Lemiuex's first NHL goal was against Peeters.
Poached? He was finally fired
I think he might be getting a little old for the game. The dynamics of goaltending have changed drastically over the last few years and judging by comments from media, personnel and players he's yet to adapt. I know Garon didn't deal well with him, he wanted to bring in his own coach.
Also Salo was a great goalie... just not after his little blunder.
