At the start of the year I was hating on Volchankov bad. But, I always thought Salvador was not good either. I think our D is not that good of a group. Larsson, Green , and Fayne are our best by far. Also, Tallinder was playing fine before we sat him. In the last 3 games I watched Salvador not moving his feet when opposing forwards come into our zone. He gets caught flat footed way to much and it leads to scoring chances for the other team. I never really thought he was good,but in the playoffs he was amazing. But, I was not expecting him to carry that over into this season. We need to realize how slow our backend is too. Look why we have such a hard time playing against the Islanders. They are one of the fastest teams in the NHL. Our D can not keep up with them. But I must say we have gotten good at blocking shots which has helped out a lot.
