He did say in his interview after re signing that he asked Lou, and the Devils to match what he was offered. He didn't say if that was the max, but he did say he asked them to match, and that brings us to his $3+ million dollar a year contract.

You never know what these teams will offer when someone goes to the market. Remember what we heard a few teams offered Shane Doan? I know he was the last good UFA on the market, but still.
And why's that?

Salvador knows his market value is higher than $2.0M, probably a decent amount higher. I think a lot of teams were interested in him.

If Salvador had the mentality that he wanted to the Devils to match whatever was offered, and if he knew he was probably worth around $3.0M, why would he sign for $2.0M?

That logic makes no sense. It's just something for people to complain about because they don't like the fact that Parise left.
