Colorado picks up Salei

The Avalanche switch up their defensive depth by adding Ruslan Salei from Florida, who is signed through 2009-10 for $3.025-million a season, in exchange for Karlis Skrastins and a third-round pick.

Skrastins is under contract for one more season at $2.4-million.

RUSLAN SALEI FLA 65 17.41 0.00 0.11 0.27 0.27 0.64
KARLIS SKRASTINS COL 43 14.93 0.04 0.09 0.09 0.19 0.37

NAME GFON/60 GAON/60 GFOFF/60 GAOFF/60
RUSLAN SALEI 2.17 2.49 2.43 2.36

“Ruslan Salei gives our club a solid and reliable asset on the blueline,” said Avalanche Executive Vice President and General Manager Francois Giguere. “We feel he can assume a major role within our defensive corps and provide some added stability in that area.”

I wonder if Colorado plans on playing Forsberg on the penalty kill. Ruslan Salei is at the very bottom of my Penalty Plus/Minus rankings, at -30 on the year.

If they do, I can just see him catching a puck on the ankle blocking a shot.
