Salo's been a great teammate on the team for a long time, but this 'aging like a fine wine' analogy seems crazy to me.
He's dramatically slowed down, especially in the 2nd half of this season. In recent games we've had a cast of characters on D like Gragnani, Alberts, and Tanev yet it is Salo who has been making mistakes down low. His play in the defensive zone is very average at this point.
Credit to him for a great career, but I would prefer him in a limited role at a limited salary for next season if he's brought back.
