First off....is it a reliable source? Yesterday there was a rumor going around that Rick DiPietro was killed in a car accident, then he was busted up in the car accident, then there was no car accident...so I'm skeptical until word actually comes down from the Canucks themselves, or at least a reliable source.
Second...if in fact he has ruptured his achilles tendon, that is a very nasty injury to recover from when you are younger, its a whole lot harder to recover from in your mid to late 30's. If these rumors are true and the injury is as serious as it could be and given Salo's injury history it could be the end for him in the NHL. He probably could spend the entire year on the LTIR then head back across the pond.
Third...if true, this makes things a little more interesting as to what Gillis is going to do regarding Bieksa and/or Mitchell.
Edit. I guess word came down....Poor Salo can't catch a break, unless its one of his bones.
