Yea, not sure what to say on this one... First Brodeur, now Salvador. I guess we're really trying to reach that cap floor.

i don't want to hear any of this "in lou we trust" bullsh!t. this is simply terrible. lou has been awful this post season.

sal for 3 fvcking years?! there is no place for him. obviously someone is getting dealt but still. to let poni walk over 1.8 and hand this out is ludicrous.

This is what I thought would happen. Lou just has all the respect in the world for Salvador. I just don't get what this means for Larsson. 3 fvcking years. Uhhhhhh.

I didn't think it be NJ that got caught paying for Salvador's fluke offensive playoff run.

Horrendous deal, worst signed so far and it isn't close. Lou has learned nothing.

Say hello to the new captain if Zach leaves. All they did was talk about what a great leader he was and how great he was for the locker room. He's a Lou type player.

Well, Salvador waited and Poni didn't.

Dumb, dumb, dumb.

Once Fayne is signed, that's 8 defenseman.

Like someone said, if he retires after a concussion, the cap hit stays.

The only positive I can think of is that it keeps last year's group together, which is better ammunition to keep Zach.

2 years would have been iffy. But 3??? Jeez.

This is shades of Pandolfo in 2008, except much worse.

We need a shutdown defenseman like Sal. Volchenkov was all over the place last season.

But that contract :puke:

Zach was a very big fan of Salvador, especially last off season when Zach suggested Sal should be captain.

There are no horrendous deals if you're not going to the cap.

I do think it's funny that they're supposed to be desperately broke but are overpaying everyone. Shoalts looks like a fool.

They couldn't have used the extra 3m this season to ensure Parise's big signing bonus and pay the captain? Or, I dunno, find a replacement?

I liked Salvador's palyoffs. This sucks, though.

Shoalts is a fool. There are lots of horrendous deals if you are not going to the cap - that is one of the dumber things I've ever heard you say, and you don't say dumb stuff.

Thats what I am thinking, the Cap does not matter at all its the actual money this team can spend.

Yeah this certainly seems to be a 'reward' type deal, which, as we've seen, has no place in the NHL after the implementation of the salary cap. This is a deal we'll all be hating two years from now when he's either retired or a healthy scratch.

Question for those who might know:

If a player retires, is he owed anything by the team?

The ONLY pro-Lou way of spinning this is that he's hoping Brodeur, Moose, and Salvador retire after this year, so their cap hits stay on yet the team would owe them no money (thus cheaply getting the team to the cap floor next year).

Although I'm sure there are tons of holes in that theory.
