Marchand tried his best to ruin Salo's career. He'll be back wearing Canucks' colours or he'll reitre.

And screw Marchand, I hope he gets dropped on his head next season.

I hope not. The Canucks, IMHO, really need to add a player who is defensively sound and can bring a physical element to their top 4 while being able to play 21-23 solid consistent minutes. I think the Canucks currently have only 3 top-4 defensemen, and it hurt us in the playoffs.

Garrision would be an ideal addition.

I think the team is best served by having Salo rotating with Tanev and Ballard (if no Garrison).

IMO the Canucks need to get bigger on the back end.

On the open market Salo makes $3-4 million per year on a 2yr deal.

Many teams need a top 4 defemceman and not many to go around.

He is still solid, and MUCH better than a guy like Gill who just signed for $2 million.

I expect him to sign at a discount again in Vancouver rather than uprooting his family. The same $2 million per year is a reasonable deal.

As much as I hated the Marchand hit, I've gotta say, Kesler attempted a similar hit that very year (with a safer outcome) so I don't think we can throw any stones. We're not the good guys either as Canuck fans, so I rather hate it when we try to paint ourselves as saints.

I don't think people would have as much of an issue if it was a guy like Bieksa, or Kesler Marchand hit.

Salo is probably the last player in the league deserving of any sort of cheap shot. The guys been class hos whole career.

Well said. Hockey is a contact sport in which players get hurt. But what Marchand did was disgraceful as far as I'm concerned.

Am I biased? Yes, obviously. Doesn't take away from the BS though.

It was a cowardly hit. But you have the blinders on.... The game of hockey is won and lost based on hits like that. Claude Lemieux won a Conn Smythe trophy because he played a dirty brand of hockey. But he played within the rules and won a Stanley Cup. If he gets a penalty then so be it. It comes with the territory. I hate Marchand with a passion. But we praise Canadian kids for giving everything they can to win a Cup. Watch the Summit Series and see what our Canadian squad did to win.

Until the rules change, I have no problem with players doing whatever they can to win. Screw etiquette. Etiquette doesn't get you anywhere. You do whatever you can do to win the Cup. Players like Marchand get you there. and that's why I love him and hate him at the same time.

Salo wasn't great at the end of last season - he's clearly not the same player he was a couple of years ago - but he's still a top-6 defenseman on all 30 teams, IMO. Always positionally sound and still very useful on the PP.

$2.5mil or less and it's a good deal, especially in a market where Hal Gill and Shane O'Brien can get $2mil on multi-year deals... and in a universe where Jay Feaster will give $25million and a NMC to Dennis Wideman.

Sign him to a one year contract

Limit his minutes/games

If Salo signs, and the Canucks sign both Schultz and Garrison, he'll get a lot of time in the pressbox. Which is totally fine with me, because he usually steps into the games just fine.

If Sami comes back as a depth defenseman i'll be happy. Probably the most consistent defenseman on our team when healthy and getting scratches now and then just bodes well for him because he's already used to it.

Hoping that the Canucks get Schultz and re-sign Salo, that would have the following players on roster:

Hamhuis - Bieksa
Edler - Tanev
Ballard - Schultz
Alberts - Salo

Unlike last few years, that has extra depth on both the left and right sides, whereas we've always had depth playing off-position previously. If we get Garrison, we trade Ballard for whatever, and that adds a player who can play either side. Not quite as good as the defence with Ehrhoff a few years back, but still very solid.

Rangers should sign Salo, 1 yr worth 3 mil in cap hit.

Pair him up with Staal.

McDonagh-Girardi
Staal-Salo
Del Zotto-Eminger/Schultz/Sauer

Why? Marchand was reaching for the puck imo. That's a bit harsh to wish injuries on someone.

Get real, even Boston fans called that one as an intent to injure.

Yes, dirty play, but still wishing an injury on a player isn't very nice.

No! You can't just keep signing Canucks players in the twilights of their careers for 1 season before they retire. First Naslund, now you want Salo?

Smart, crafty player that can still play minutes. We're a better team with him in the line-up. Bring him back for a year, take what you can get from him, then hire him next year. Good guy to have around the team and I'm sure he'll come cheap.

don't even bother with Kershaw. He hates the Canucks for some reason. He was agreeing with Oilers fans in the Schultz thread that the Oil are on the upswing for moving up 1 spot in the standings, while the Canucks are on the downswing because they didn't make the SCF. Fails at trolling, proved my point for me in that same thread with one of his posts haha
