Also, for the record, "hurt" and "injured" are not the same. Timonen is often "hurt"-- Salo is often "injured".
You don't think guys played injured the later it gets into the season? Being injured is not exclusive to missing games.

Every team routinely has a few players who miss a quarter of the season (not always the same players), and know to plan to have to use 8 or 9 or 10 defensemen. The Flyers still need to figure out which other defenseman besides Timonen can run a power play, given what would have been Salo's role on the team and is rather effective at it, it would have been a risk worth taking. I wouldn't have given him a 2nd year though.
