People slot him in as our 7th just because it's hard to rely on him, he misses 20 games a season consistently. If he came back for one more year he'd likely get sheltered minutes just to keep him healthy for the playoffs. He'd probably get quite a few maintenance days off too. He's still the perfect "#6" defenseman, because when he is on the ice he is still capable of playing like a top pairing guy (it was only 2 seasons ago that Sali was regarded as our best defenseman). He's great, we just need to use him effectively.
