Salo's performance is tough to swallow though. And so will his contract.
It may be game eight, but Salo has not performed like we suspect he can for longer than that. Since last year, when his sv% was .899, near the bottom for starters and well below his usual .905-.910 range.
I agree that our defense is weak. I would like to see Comrie moved for a servicable center and a good no 3 or 4 defenseman (maybe I'm dreaming in technicolor). All I'm saying is that there are a lot of goalies out there that can be mediocre, but many (like Hurme at 1.1M) come WAY cheaper than Salo. Just look at the difference, 2.8M bucks, that could have been Janne Niinimaa!!! Wouldn't this team look better with Janne (or a comparable d-man) here, and with a younger,cheaper, but no less talented goalie???
