Canucks Re-Sign Sami Salo to 1-Year, $2m Deal

#NHL news. Scratch Sami Salo of the UFA list. He re-signs in with #Canucks. Working on the details but believed to be a 1 year deal at 2M.

Confirming previous reports that VAN has signed Sami Salo to a one-year deal worth $2M.

like the term. I wonder if it were 2 year, would it have been 1.5M?

Canucks and Chris Higgins are having contract talks. I expect he avoids free agency.

Shouldn't there be a free agency day GDT?

Thank you Sami. Now that's a discount.

Time to get Higgins re-signed.

Gut feeling, don't hold your breath.

And so far my gut was right about both Ehrhoff and Shirokov.

2 million is a steal for a guy like Salo. This offseason just took a huge turn for the better.

I was expecting $2.5 myself...wow. I love that cap hit for Salo, nice hometown discount. Glad to see that he will hopefully retire a Canuck.

Great deal. Salo at 2 million is superb value. Now Sami, watch out, there might be snakes back in Finland waiting for you!

I agree. I was expecting he'd sign for $2.25-$2.5 range as well. Very happy to see him back at a really good rate. I hope he can stay healthy and at least provide 70 or so games.

I really thought Sami would try and hold out for the 2 year deal. With Erhoff gone, it was important to get this done and give guys like Tanev time to develop.

Is that Pavol's official account? If so, nice of him to burn the midnight oil to tell us the good news!

Excellent signing. Hopefully he can stay healthy.

Good mentor for a guy like Tanev.

Awesome deal for a guy who has been our best defenceman over the last decade. I'm psyched on this deal.

Not sure. But the 4 am is interesting. He's called some other stuff.

Ridiculous value given the market. Sami did the team another favour.

I'm always a fan of short term deals. It gives you flexibility now and in the future.

1 or 2 yr deals is the kind of contracts we should be looking at unless there is a player you feel could be part of our core.
