We have a top notch goalie in Salo. Dipietro is overrated IMO and Boucher could hack it in Philly and not can't hack it in Phx. Salo will have a rebound year, he loves to play in Edmonton. What more do we want?
Pasi Nurminen and Brent Johnson are a great deal better than Rousell and Antilla, I am not saying we should trade Salo I love him and hes a really good goalie that is under-rated I am just saying theres justification for doing so and wanted to know if u think Lowe would trade him. He's up for free agency this year and I can't see us resigning him at over $3.9million with built in league salary inflators he should cost us a minimum of $4.29 million next year and I just can't justify that kind of dough for his numbers. I think we should pick up a potential no.1 goalie this year just incase we can not re-sign Tommy and would not want to see us in a disadvantageous position should we be stuck without a starter and trying to trade for one.

would love a deal like this
To San Jose:
Comrie(I think Vinny Damphousse can play wing)

To Edm:
Brad Stuart(injured now but he's a top 4 d-man and a power play quarter back and quite affordable)
Vesa Toskala(San Jose has been a goal tending farm for a few years and this kid looks quite good he just beat Kiprusoff for the back-up job and has had impressive stats in his short NHL experience.)
