Add Salo to Blues list
The Fourth Period – According to espn’s Darren Pang one goalie that the St. Louis Blues are interested in that not many people are considering is Edmonton Oiler Tommy Salo. The Blues, although having received solid goaltending from call-up Curtis Sanford the last four games, are still on the lookout for a number one netminder to lead them into the playoffs.
Pang said the goalie mentioned most frequently as going to the Blues, Phoenix Coyote Sean Burke will not be traded in his opinion unless Phoenix is unsuccessful is unloading some of their other high-salaried veterans and must look to Burke as a last resort.
Edmonton has been impressed with the play this year of backup goalie Jussi Markkanen, and apparently GM Kevin Lowe, upset by the team’s poor play of late, is ready to shake things up. It is still a stretch to think that Lowe would give up one of the more consistent goalies in the league the past few years, but it is a possibility, says Pang.
