Very much agree with the sentiment in this thread. Felt very much the same when Ohlund left to TB as well. Both key parts of the team for a long time and very underated...will definitely miss you SALO!
As a side note, for that money, I wouldn't have really wanted the Canucks to sign him.
How many players release statements like that after they have signed somewhere else? Few have the class of Sami. Not going to lie, my eyes got a little teary reading that. I wish him the best of luck in Tampa. Should definitely be honored in the ROH when all is said and done.
Salo has been one of the few Canuck players that have been on the roster since my I've become a hardcore fan, so it's even tough for me to see him move on. I really wish he would have been able to win a Cup here. I think the year we went to the Final I was wanting us to win more for him more than anyone else!
