There is no guarantee that any of those 3 players are Devils 3 years from now. Obviously I would expect them to be here, but hockey is a business. Assuming you're a playoff contender and not rebuilding, you make decisions based on works now. If we're doing things only to benefit ourselves 3 years from now, this franchise has done a complete 180.
And I`m not saying anything else, just think about it for a second.

Sal is a good choice now and it gives them the opportunity to give it to someone younger when he retires.
