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

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.


wait...huh? He didn't get it. Although he could easily have too.

Bryce needs to be re-signed next year. What a performance so far.

Oh I see what you were saying...he was the one selected from our team for the award. I didn't know that list existed let alone was available so my bad. Posted Image

When I do look at the current nominees though I do have to wonder whether anyone is more deserving than Salvador.

I love Bryce I wasn't in the same boat. But he's definitely stepped up this year. He had a great assist this game.

2 more assists tonight. Crazy. You can see he's really poised with the puck and does a good job of waiting for a shooting lane to open up. The whole defense did a better job of that tonight but Salvador stuck out. Great deflectable shot for Carter to tip.

I'll gladly eat crow. Toward the beginning of the season, he looked like he was still concussed: slow decision making, bad decisions, some awkward giveaways, etc...

He's stepped up to really take the job of #1 D-man and he is a leader. I love his poise and strength, he has never looked so good in a Devils uniform as he has in the past few months. Let's chalk another one up for Lou for that trade he made a few years ago to get this guy..

"The $297,297 Kovalchuk missed today is money he will never, ever get back. And the more cheques he misses, the better the deal is going to have to be for the players to justify him sitting out. And unlike the owners, the players can direct their leadership to get a deal done regardless of how disadvantageous it is to them."

I thought he was finished after him being out all last season.

I am very happy I was completely wrong.
