I had the feeling when we re signed Salvador a worst case scenario was the coaches had a short leash with Adam like they did late in the season, and could throw in the A for a little while. That definitely won't happen now.
I look at Salvador more as not being able to afford letting such a stable player go and as protection for injuries. Tallinder missed a long time last year. Larsson had his moments where he was banged up. Volchenkov's style leads to injuries here and there. Having those 7 NHL defensemen we have (not counting Harrold and anyone else in Albany/other young guys) is a nice luxury if you can afford it. How DeBoer will split up the time amongst them (excluding any future injuries which make that a little easier to decide) is beyond me though.
