Salo's value post-Kiprusoff deal

Okay, Kipper just went to the Flames for a 2nd in 2005.

What does this say about Salo's current value, if anything?

Salo likely has negative value right now

Salo is a #1 though (albeit not a highly toted one at this point). We might be able to drop Salo for a #2 now or a Centre prospect. I'd rather drop him for a centre prospect personally. One that can make the team and challenge for a spot right away. After all - we pretty much have no Centres other than Horcoff, Stoll, and Sarno at the moment.

Any ideas of who we could get?

salo has a bit more value than a lot of 2nd tier goalies because of his contract. The oilers own a team option on each of the next two years at a guarantteed amount. That is the difference between him and a goalie like checkmanek. With either of the romans, you are pretty much committed for a few more years because they are arb elligable.

If tommy plays well for a new team, they can keep him. If he doesn't do well, they can dump him at no cost. This was some pretty far-sighted negotiating on lowe's part.

Agree but only if Salo rebounds and performs well up until the trade deadline (he is not playing like a second tier goalie). The way he's currently playing he has negative trade value because no one wants to pick up his salary. Trading for Salo now does have a cost - he's making almost $4 million this year - and no one will touch him until most of that is paid.
