Like i said "if" they wanted to bring Salo back before the playoffs.
Also there my be a problem with the League leaving Salo on the LITR if it was seen as an attempt to get around the cap.
Moreover, might have been some concern about getting Salo into some game action before throwing him into the playoffs.
Obviously you would only consider moving someone out at point where you were wanting to get Salo back in. Certainly no one suggested they move out a player if there was some doubt about whether Salo was ready.
The only thing being discussed were the options if you wanted to get Salo back in the lineup. If you did then some move would have to be made. Soon as the injury occurred then that changed the discussion. Prior to that it was totally appropriate to consider what moves would have to be made to get Salo back in.
