I was under the impression that Salvador was going to resign elsewhere when taking into consideration that our current blueline is pretty full ATM and that we have one or two prospects who are looking to make the big club as well.

Having both Sal and A-Train on our blueline, eating just over 7.4M$ combined, isn't the best way to maximise our cap space/money IMO, especially when we have to resign key players this off season the likes of Zajac/Elias/Zubrus/Clarkson/Zidlicky and a couple of RFA's (but the difference for our RFA's are going to be marginal at best).
We're not likely to be anywhere near the cap, so it probably doesn't matter, but I agree with you, Salvador is making too much on this contract.

And specifically forwards in the mould of Zubrus. Big and gritty, but also skilled enough to score when he gets the chance.
