I would have loved to have gotten him for cheaper. If he hadn't gone to UFA we probably could have gotten him for a lot less. I can't help, but think a lot of the bidding was based off his playoffs too. I just don't want another contract like that to Zubrus though. $2.5 tops, and hopefully not for too many years.

Salvador's contract reminds me more of Pandolfo's than Rolston. Only I don't think Pandolfo was 35. Pandolfo got that big contract, and started slipping. The next year which was the year Madden was gone, he was just painful to watch. Loved the guy, but couldn't have been more happy to see him go when he asked for a his buyout.

Apice I don't think the cap will end up at $70 million. I think the proposed numbers last I saw were like $63 million for this year, and $66 for next, but at one time it was $60 million for next year with $58 for this year.
