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.

NAME TM GP TOI/60 QUAL COMP G/60 A1/60 A2/60 PTS/60
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

RUSLAN SALEI 2.17 2.49 2.43 2.36
KARLIS SKRASTINS 1.96 1.96 2.92 3.00

“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.
