Er, weren't most of us asking why "The Juice" wasn't getting more starts, when his stats were a fair bit better than Salo's?

Last year was a little frustrating on the goaltending front- seemed to me that it was catch-22... If Salo was playing well, they kept playing him- why mess with success? If Salo was struggling, they kept playing him- gotta give him a chance to play through his slump.

Seems to me that this is about the part of last season that Jiri Dopita finally ran out of patience with Lowe and/or MacTavish. I believe it was when the Oilers got lit by the Bruins during the annual November road trip that Dopie became a healthy scratch. I can't help thinking that this "groin injury" that sent Salo home was awfully convenient.
