Sami Salo recalled from conditioning loan, likely to play Sat.

Quote:
WILKES-BARRE, Pa. The Manitoba Moose are likely to get some high-priced help for their blueline this weekend.

Veteran NHL defenceman Sami Salo is expected to join the AHL team in time for Friday's AHL game against the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins. It's slated to be a conditioning assignment as he tries to resume his career after suffering a torn Achilles tendon last summer.

Two weeks. I don't think there's a game limit.

Love it. Gonna be interesting to see how things play out when he gets the call up, but I guess it's a good problem to have.

13.9 Bona Fide Long-Term Injury/Illness Exception Conditioning Loan.
A Player who is on the Bona Fide Long-Term Injury/Illness Exception as set forth in Article 50 may, with his consent, during the term of such Bona Fide Long-Term Injury/Illness Exception (but in no event during the first fourteen (14) calendar days and six (6) NHL Games), be Loaned on a Conditioning Loan (the "Bona Fide Long-Term Injury/Illness Exception Conditioning Loan") for a period not to exceed up to the longer of six (6) days and three (3) games, solely for the purpose of determining whether the Player is fit to play. If the Club determines that it needs more time to assess the Player's fitness to play, the Club may file a written request by facsimile with the Commissioner's Office, with a copy to the NHLPA, in accordance with Exhibit 3 hereof, to extend the Loan for an additional two (2) games.

The Commissioner, upon good cause, may approve the onetime extension. The Commissioner's approval shall not be unreasonably withheld. A Player on a Bona Fide Long-Term Injury/Illness Exception Conditioning Loan will continue to be listed on Injured Reserve and will not count against the Club's 23-man roster limit. The Club's Bona Fide Long-Term Injury/Illness Exception will continue until the Conditioning Loan ends, and his Paragraph 1 NHL Salary and Bonuses will continue to count against the Club's Upper Limit and the Players' Share during such time. The Commissioner may take whatever steps he deems necessary to investigate the circumstances under which a Player is placed on a Bona Fide Long-Term Injury/Illness Conditioning Loan. If he has reason to believe or determines that the Club has used the Bona Fide Long-Term Injury/Illness Conditioning Loan to evade Re-Entry Waivers or otherwise to Circumvent any provision of this Agreement, he may take other disciplinary action against the Club as he deems appropriate. A Bona Fide Long-Term Injury/Illness Conditioning Loan may be extended on one occasion. This procedure can only be used once during each period of time that the Player is on a Bona Fide Long-Term Injury Exception.
Six days, three games. The club can apply to extend the loan for another two games. Has this been changed? I also thought it was two weeks...

Assuming this is all correct, the loan could be from Friday to next Wednesday - the Moose play four games in that span but have three in a row so it would be wise to sit Salo for the Saturday game. At the end of the loan the Canucks can apply to the league to extend the loan for two more games.. the next two Moose games are the following weekend, I'm not sure if Salo would be allowed to skip games or if the league would consider that illegal.

So it looks like within about a week or two, barring further injury, we'll have:

Bieksa-Hamhuis
Ehrhoff-Salo
Ballard-Alberts
Tanev-Sweatt
Rome

That's 9 guys -- who sits?

My guess is that Sweatt will go back down and Rome will ride the pine. That leaves one spot for Alberts or Tanev -- I think best bet is that Tanev goes back down too. He's been super impressive while he's been up here, and he should gain a huge amount of confidence from that. Barring further injury he'll get a lot of ice time in Manitoba and hopefully add some muscle in the offseason and have a really good shot at cracking the top-6 next year.

Anyone think we could see Tanev stick? And does that mean one of Rome/Alberts gets moved? Gillis likey defensive depth.

I've been considering going to a Moose game, too bad the article says he most likely won't play a home game. Oh well.

Thanks for the info.

I doubt Alberts gets moved. He's our most physical defenceman and our biggest. What I think is going to happen is that we're sticking with the vets for the regular season and sending Tanev and Sweatt down. If we struggle for a game or two at the back end during the playoffs then the revolving door policy is going to be utilized.

Tanev and Sweatt will go down to the AHL. They can both be assigned and recalled without waivers, and would be best served getting playing time rather than sitting in the press box.

Better to have Rome or Alberts sit in the pressbox rather than either Tanev or Sweatt. Those two need icetime - even at the AHL level.

It's a miracle! Why, just weeks ago it looked like he might never play again...or at least not until the playoffs.

That's a lot of time for Sami Salo to be knocking around in Manitoba risking injury. 20-1 he's out three-four weeks with a prairie dog bite before the conditioning stint is over.

Nah, a miracle would be if he didn't miss another game due to injury until next season.

That's very interesting. Who knows what he's going to look like when he comes back into the lineup after such a long layoff. I've got a feeling it's not going to be pretty but as long as he improves between now and the playoffs we'll be fine. Baring further injuries (yeah right) I think Salo is going to be a bottom pairing player for the foreseeable future.

That depends if it's an LTIR loan. The Canucks have the cap space and the roster spot for Salo to go on a normal conditioning loan, so it may be longer (up to 2 weeks). I guess we'll find out fairly soon which kind it is.

So if Salo is fine, he'll have close to half a season to work his way back up to 100%, which should be plenty. Assuming that happens, the problem now shifts to Edler, both in terms of fitting him under the cap if he's ready before the end of the season, and getting him up as close to 100% as possible for the playoffs.

I say 3rd period of the first game in this conditioning stint.
