There is absolutely no silver lining to his contract and his position as captain. He is the Jay Leach of the NJ roster and that's not a flattering comparison.

when you combined it with the last three years of this Volchenkov contract, it actually gets worse!

I couldn't agree more. The only thing Salvador may bring is keeping the room together, which I have a feeling has been an ongoing issue for the team.

That being said, he looks like he channels Mark Fraser the way he plays .

Awful game to attend.. The fans were very nice, which helped because in Philly I would have been heckled out of the building

Consol EC is a very nice arena.. Awesome scoreboard, awesome lower concourse and sight lines, but the upper level concourse sucks.. It's small and overcrowded, like an afterthought.. Anyway, here are some photos from the game

It's always easy to be polite when your team crushed the visitors.

Very true.. Decent number of Devil fans there too, just wish the team had showed up as well.. I haven't felt that embarrassed since Marty blew it in the Atlantic City charity game.. Oh well, I'm drinking at a church

Tri is right, the Salvador deal is a true fiasco.

He wasn't awful in the playoffs...but he did get sort of lucky on some long shots that were deflected in. Made it look like he had a monster postseason (for somebody who had 9 pts in 82 games that is)

Tough to see how Lou would get fooled by something like this. He's about to turn 37 and is in year 1 of this nightmare. He was already showing plenty of wear and tear last season. Was this a loyalty contract. Will Lou hang on to him in spite of what's best for the team just like he did with Odelein from 1996 until 2000?

Can't win them all. I kinda expected a loss today I just wish the effort was better. I did enjoy Antons big hit on Malkin.

Hey Colin, pretty sure I saw you during the opening of the game too.

It wouldn't shock me if Salvador was re-signed mainly because they didn't want to make Kovy captain. There was no other candidate on the roster, other than Elias who has said he doesn't want the C now.

It makes no sense otherwise given their situation on D now and down the road.

Zajac perhaps?

I see nothing wrong with going with 3 A's. Captaincy in hockey is overrated anyway.

That is ridiculous. The signing was made because Lamoriello has the utmost respect for Salvador. Loves loves loves him. Everything from his demeanor to his great comeback. The playoff run was just the icing on the cake, and the reason why Lou had to give the years and the money that he did. Even though it didn't make sense, Lou wanted Salvador on this team.

Is that ever how Lou operates? No. Enough said.

Lol someone else said they thought they saw me.. I was walking around the concourse prior to warmups and this dude with a camera saw me and ran over and was telling me to act amped up on camera.. Hope to make it on TV again for future games

If Volchenkov gets back to the A-train of old by laying dudes out and pissing people off ala Claude Lemieux like he did in Ottawa he'll be worthy. Stevens must of got in his face or something cause after his benching he did come out hitting. The only thing is he's injury prone so when he starts hitting again expect to miss some time.

...and Larsson is just fvcking clueless right now and should be in the AHL.
