Can you elaborate on why this is apparent?
I share this opinion, because it was clear some nights he was the worst d-man on the ice, and sitting him was never an option. You don't healthy scratch your captain; it's just not done. It pissed me off to no end on those nights where, let's say, Fayne or Larsson were sitting and Salvador was playing. He's essentially guaranteed a roster spot for this coming year as well.
I'm not saying he should be stripped of the 'C', in fact I feel like such a move would be locker room suicide. He hasn't done anything to deserve having it removed, he just never should have been given the 'C' in the first place, imo.
The obvious choice for me was Kovalchuk, or Zajac. Both on long term deals, both likely to be playing top-6 minutes for the duration of their contracts and contribute, etc.
