#2183919 Thoughts on Sami Salo?

Posted by T.Low on 09 June 2011 - 12:10 AM

bridges the gap to ryan suter next off-season.



seems like a fair proposal to me.

on this board we have, as we have in many other realms on this planet, an incredible surplus of people that love to shoot down others' ideas, and an incredible shortage of people that dare to propose their own.


Your OP only asked for thoughts on Salo, and DetroitFan gave you his thoughts backed up by three sound reasons, and you got mad and pissy with your repsonse.

And further more, it's not bridging a gap until Suter gets here, it's wasting money while Salo sits injured when we could be getting good production out of someone else.

Yes, it's a quandry, but Salo (or Jovo for that matter) is not the answer.

Salo is awesome but it would seem more like a temporary fix rather than a long term solution

This is why the little punk gets negged all the time. He asks a question then is a prick to you when you don't agree with him.

Man you get negged everytime you post something! (it wasnt me!)


oh no! my internet popularity is at an all-time low!

No thanks. Too injury prone, not physical, turnover prone when under pressure.

Very good d-man when he's healthy.

Breaks down more often than a Chevy Vega.

He's big (6-3, 212...though not all that physical), solid defensively, moves the puck well, has a monster right-handed shot from the point, seems to be the odd man out of the Bieksa-Ehrhoff-Salo equation in VAN, made a reasonable 3.5mil last season, and at 36 years of age, might be willing to sign a short one or two year contract that doesn't tie us up long term. Durability seems to be the main concern.

I know how you all hate lines...but I like the looks of this

Lidstrom-Salo
Kronwall-Stuart
Smith/Ericsson-Kindl

Things that would happen before Nick would play for the Lightning...

2. Joe Thorton decides to grow up & not be a diving little ***** any more
3. Atlanta's new hockey team moves to Red Deer, Alberta
4. Jiri Hudler becomes the Wings #1 center, leading scorer, & wins the Conn Smythe on the way to bringing another Cup to Hockeytown
5. Kwame Kilpatrick elected mayor of Detroit again after getting out of prison
6. The robot apocalypse
7. Extraterrestrial life is confirmed as is the fact that Elvis & Michael Jackson have been living with them for years
8. Dwayne Elizondo Mountain Dew Herbert Camacho is elected President of the United States
9. Garry Bettman pushes through rules changes to increase the amount of fighting in the NHL
10. blueadams gives up posting line combo threads on LGW

I don't think that word means what you think it means.


from wiki:
In Internet slang, a troll is someone who posts inflammatory[citation needed], extraneous, or off-topic messages in an online community, such as an online discussion forum, chat room, or blog, with the primary intent of provoking readers into an emotional response[2] or of otherwise disrupting normal on-topic discussion.[3] The noun troll may refer to the provocative message itself, as in: "That was an excellent troll you posted".

Lidstrom re-signs with Detroit or retires. End of story.

Besides, I wouldn't really consider TB more of a contender than the Wings next season.

I negged ya for negging folks that recognize a troll for what he is. I always thought you were supposed to dog trolls a little then ignore them.


Thanks, Captain Obvious. Next.

When there is a Captain Obvious answer being "no" by pretty much everybody in here, there's nothing really to discuss.

EDIT: Yeah yeah yeah, I know what you are going to say, "Then why did you respond in the first place, blah blah blah yackity shmackity."


Captain Obvious Answers to YOU are not that way to everyone else.

I thought Holmstrom was done 4 years ago and kept telling everyone that his roll on the team was diminishing. It was OBVIOUS to me that he was benefiting from playing on a line with Datsyuk and Zetterberg, but really not bringing much value to the team other than a good power play presence in front of the net. It took people on here 2 years to see this CAPTAIN OBVIOUS point and start saying things like "Holmstrom should be pp/4th line specialist". It's now acceptable to post something like that, but would get you banned if you did it in 2009. So let's just remember that this is a DISCUSSION FORUM. I have no problem with people not wanting to discuss things, but just putting up stupid little retorts to anything that YOU FEEL is an obvious answer really doesn't make this place any better. It's just annoying.

the world would definitely end,if lidstrom signs with lightning.


Yah, I would be crushed. I was kind of hoping to see if people would not like Lidstrom anymore or if they would be happy for him. That whole Bourque thing was super strange, and the Lebron thing is totally strange too. I wonder if Lidstrom left and won a cup with his new club, if Red Wing fans would be happy for him. Or if they would burn his jersey or stuff like that.

Lidstrom resigns with the Lightning?

If Stevie brings Lids down to Tampa Bay to bolster their chances at a cup run next year, would you still like Lidstrom? Or would your feelings change?


It's unthinkable because it's absolutely implausible.

Next.
