The Salvador Needs to Go - Eat Crow Thread

76 posts in this topic

I am charter member.. at beginning of season I was desperate for Lou to work some magic and dump this old-injured-slow unless D-man and clear the cap space

He was our best D-man all year and 2 playoff goals against the Phailures...

Lead the team with TOI and +/-

I stand corrected once again

Yep, was furious they shipped out Whitey over Sal at the start of the year. Sal has picked it up big time, especially with Volch struggling so badly these playoffs.

nomnomnomnomnom here... He was slow and clueless for a few months, effects of the concussion I'm sure. But he was phenomenal after January and during the playoffs. I was very happy to see them give him the "A" during Kovy's absence. Truly deserving!

I wasnt hoping his was bought out in the offseason, but i was excited to see his 3 million coming off the books at the end of this year.

Also ridiculous he is not a masterston candidate.

It's really a shame a team can't have two nominees, because it's REALLY hard to argue with Sykora getting it.

I've always kind of liked Sal, glad to seem him finally getting some credit this year/series.

Was thinking about how strange it was that he seemed as good as retired last season, and it wasn't like I was missing him.

I was also in the "he should retire or get bought out" crowd before the season. He had an incredible bounce back year and has been very solid in the playoffs, even making some smart offensive plays. Glad our management knew better than me and kept him.

It's almost unreal how good he's been. The stats he has...you expect them from Greene, or Zidlicky. Not Salvador.

I was wrong on this one too. Good job proving us wrong Lou/Sal!

And you can Add Andy Greene to the list as well, MANY here wanted him traded. didnt think he was worth 2 mil let alone 3.5 mil. he was the best D skater in the series (with zid)constantly getting the puck behind the net and skating it clear

Can't believe the recovery. Could be up for Masterton!

I do wish he would stop taking penalties, but that's my only complaint with his play. He's been crazy solid.

Well -- I don't feel like eating crow about it. Mostly because I reserved judgment compared to year before last. His heart coming back to play from his concussion sold me on him until the end of his contract.

He far surpassed my expectations in the playoffs. I don't think he could have done it without the team -- but most guys can't even do it WITH the team.

So I don't eat crow as much as just sincerely cheer him and his ability to keep learning and growing -- he's earned the Devils logo

I always liked Sal and thought he was solid, but I never thought he'd be this good. The man is in full beast mode these playoffs.

Yep, thought keeping him instead of white was a huge mistake.

Man was I wrong
