Salvador is sadly not a Calder Trophy nominee for his impressive season, by the way.
Calder? Salvador? Is this a gaffe Chico made?
I like Salvador. We have a lot of prospect D's that I like. Urbom being my favorite. I would like to see him up.
Though it would be a crime not to re sign Salvador. Do you know how many goals this guy has saved this year? We'll get a good deal out of him with a low cap hit. Something reasonable. I think so at least. He takes way too many delay of game penalties by putting the puck over the glass, but usually we don't give up goals on his penalties! I think we did once I remember.
I'd like to see him, Sykora, and Moose back. This is a really good team we have this year despite having slumps, and our hard times.
i thought all 3 were rookies at the same time. Did malkin stay in russia that year?
Yes, I remember it being a big story when he disappeared from his team in Magnitogorsk in the middle of the season, and then reappeared in Pittsburgh. That was definitely after the lockout because I was in college at the time.
I feel bad bagging on Chico even though he is a human blooper reel. He feels like a member of the (Devils) family since he has been affiliated with the organization on and off since their birth, and he's so darn upbeat too.
But there's going to come a point where I just mute the TV and listen to Matt and Sherry, the blooper reel does get old...especially since it's not just Chico's blooper reel.
As bad as Chico has been, I would NEVER mute the TV and turn on the Devils Broadcast to listen to Matt "He scores......5 minutes earlier" Loughlin. I'm sorry but at least Chico is funny to listen to in a train-wreck kind of way....
And Steve at least is ON-TIME with his calls even if at times he doesn't know which way is up or down....
