Wow, Salo has the worst luck...

Depending on the prognosis, it probably would put Bieksa trade rumors to rest. If he is out long-term, can the Canucks exceed the cap by 10% before training camp and not include Salo's salary in the 10% over? I'm assuming not... Can he be put on LTIR during the summer, allowing the Canucks to use his LTIR replacement money once the Canucks reach the cap ceiling?

If Salo is too old to be traded, why not just waive him or LTIR him then and keep Bieksa? This might explain why MG hasn't seemed to be in much of a hurry to trade Bieksa. If the injury did indeed happen in June, he probably found out about it sometime around the draft.
