Salvador has been a great Devil, and was a rock last year (amazingly, against all odds). That said, I hate the contract. I don't want to find out how effective he is or isn't at age 39. Also, as mentioned previously, we've got a lot of young talent coming up, and not much room to put it. We only free up one space next year by letting Zids go, but both Merrill and Urbom will be knocking hard on the door.
The other two examples of bad contracts mentioned (Rolston, Pandolfo) are slightly different because it's easier to "hide" a forward in the lineup. There are only 6 D, and if one of them isn't pulling their weight, you've got a problem.
Lou signed this contract with his heart and not his head.
