Salvador wasn't so bad before he was injured, though. It sucks that one of the young guys will be coming out, but I suppose spending some time in Albany won't be the worst thing for Merrill. When Larsson comes back, though, we may have some other problems.

That's a shame. Wishing he'd retire to be honest.

He's better right now then merril
Merrill could use some more time down in Albany. Isn't a issue here. I'm worried about Larsson though, Gelinias can't come out.

So Sal is in but no D comes out, going seven D with Gelinas getting time at forward likely (per TG).

 

Ladies and gentlemen, we've hit the Weird Hockey © portion of the schedule.

Honestly, I don't think it's a terrible move. Not like DeBoer is rolling four lines all game these days anyway, so might as well start Gelinas up front and have some backup for when Volchenkov or Salvador break down mid-game.

 

I imagine after a handful of tries up front, it'll just be three forward lines and seven D rotating in and out.

i believe that it is.. i hope he isnt resigned we can use his money some where else we have enough quality D.. but for some reason coaching and management like the guy so who knows i would think they would be making him another offer in the off season.

My how short memories we have... Salvador was such a key piece on the cup run two years ago but now people are clamoring for him to be off the team. I've got news for you- right now he's better defensively than gelinas, Merril and zidlicky, and on top of that he's a leader in the lockeroom and the guys seem to like him.

Ideally one of Fayne or zid is traded, but until that happens and it probably won't I'm fine with the 7 d rotation and I'd even be fine with Merrill going back to Albany if that's what has to happen for Salvador to stay (when larsson gets back).

He's slow and old. Salvador in for volch, sure no arguments there. But are you serious? Zids and Gelinas bring something that makes up for there defensive flaws, overall I'd rather have either one of them over him any day. Merrill isn't as physical but he's pretty good in his own end, barring some rookie mistakes.

 

I don't care what Salvador did 2 years ago, he's not the same player he was, he is 2 years older and it shows. I imagine you are a hard core proponent of letting Marty split/get more starts than Cory.

 

That being said I like him ALOT more than I like Volchenkov, but they both are way to slow. And this team did just fine with him not in the locker room for the majority of the year, I don't think he brings anything to the Locker room that we don't have without him. The guys are tough, are they never give up.  

I really don't want Merrill sent down, I think he's getting more than enough ice time, to the point where if its between learning up here or down there, I'd prefer it be up here. But you are right Salvador is not going to get benched and he's not going to be traded, so looks like Fayne needs to be moved. Fayne + teddy, lou should work some magic and hose someone.
