Salo joins the Lightning

The Tampa Bay Lightning have signed defenseman Sami Salo to a two-year deal worth $3.75 million per season.

SPECTOR’S NOTE: Salo turns 38 this fall and has a lengthy injury history, so this is a bit pricey, When healthy, however,  he’s a very good blueliner, who should fill the void left by the injured Mattias Ohlund, whose career is in doubt because of knee injuries.
