First: full disclosure, this was mentioned by he who shall not be named, so basically consider this just a big giant rosterbation on my part. But consider this scenario:
1. Salo decide's enough is enough with his injury and decides to retire. Predicting a retirement is allowed when rosterbating, so deal with it.
2. Burke drafted Bieksa, Burke loves former Burke players, and loves truculence.
3. Canucks - Salo - Bieksa + Kaberle = $3 million less cap hit, so it would fit.
Would we want that? Bieksa (who has 1 year left) + a draft pick or prospect (and throw in Hordichuck for free! for 1 year of Kaberle?
