That being said I guess I didn't miss him enough to follow his game in NJ. However during these playoffs he has looked great!
Sal was one of our steadiest defensive defencemen during the regular season, and one of the cornerstones of our record setting PK. Last summer, many of us thought he'd be washed up after missing a whole season with a concussion, but he's been solid as a rock and didn't miss a game.

In the playoffs, it's been exactly the same, except he's started scoring too. We're honestly not sure where this has come from, but we like it.

Many of the other Devils credit him with being a vocal leader in the room as well. When Kovy was out for Game 2 of this series, Sal wore the A in his stead and everybody agreed he was the natural choice.

He's going UFA this summer, and I wouldn't mind bringing him back for a one year deal. But Lou might let him go due to the logjam of NHL ready defensive prospects forming behind him. I'll miss him if that's the case.
