In case you haven't heard, Sami Salo will be making his season-debut for the Canucks' in tomorrow night's game versus the Calgary Flames after rehabbing an offseason tear to his Achilles tendon suffered during a game of floorball. It should be an exciting moment for Salo, who no doubt suffered through a lot of mental and physical resistance to make it to this point.

  5. SuperSalo will save the Canucks D. I believe.
