Salvador is the worst


Probably one of the most least talented captains to ever wear a 'C', but hey, he tries hard. That should count for something.

Finally get to watch a whole game, and this is what I get. Absolutely BRUTAL play. 16 shots... come on. The way Pittsburgh moved the puck made us look like an ECHL team.

We had ten of the thirteen current forwards on our roster last year, losing Parise, Sykora and Ponikarovsky (approximately 60 goals combined). Our roster 'replacements' are currently Matteau, Barch and Harrold. Yeah that ain't gonna cut it Lou.

I hope so. At least he's finally getting some rest in the 3rd period of this game.

Even down 5-1 on a PP we can't get any shots. Unreal.


Little late for that, he still played his 24 minutes. Of course, he'll probably have to pop another groin before they realize they're running him into the ground again the way they did last fall. Even after that he was still playing a minute or two too much and that was with a lineup much deeper than this one.

I know everyone played awful today, but Bryce Salvador is the biggest contract mistake Lou ever made, and to do it when the Devils have to give up a draft pick during the time he's here - this could go very wrong very fast if the people who can actually play get hurt.

Has anyone ever bought out their captain? I kid...for now. Really, Sal isn't anywhere near the biggest problem 'this' year. It's down the road where they're going to either need spots for their young defensemen in the pipeline, or trade a couple of those young defensemen because there's no room that Sal's contract is the issue.

No. Colin White could play in the NHL, and was a good player for many years. The way Salvador is playing right now, he shouldn't be in the NHL, or should be a fill-in defender at best. But no, he's playing 20 minutes. And he has 2 years left on his deal. Oh, and he's the captain, further cementing his roster spot.

Salvador was not good last year and has begun the year atrocious. Everyone does better without him on the ice.

The reason our defense was so good during the second half of last year was our dominating forecheck and offensive zone pressure. We lack that right now due to us dressing a fourth line as our third line. Lou needs to make some moves.

I didn't expect the Devils to defeat the Penguins but I thought they would be more competitive than just 16 shots. Feel bad for Brodeur - there is only so much a goaltender can do when the team in front of him gets dominated and makes dumb mistakes. I think the effort was there for the Devils, it was just one of those days where a lot went wrong. It's going to happen during the year, onto the next game.
