Hey Nick,
Just wanted to keep this Shultz @ $4MM conversation going a bit longer after watching the St. Louis game. Did you happen to notice who the Blues were matching against Gabby & Demo? None other than Bryce Salvador. And I'd have to say he did a fine job. He was a blanket on Gaborik for much of the game--can't really blame him for Gabby's game winner, as that was an ill-advised drop pass that caught him behind the play on the turnover. I've seen a few Blues games this year (didn't last year and this is only year 2 of having center ice), and to me he looks like a very solid player.

Which kind of makes me curious... you'd give Shultz $4MM, but wouldn't give Salvador $3MM. What am I missing?

What? You didn't bet on the Wild @ home on Sunday against the Nucks? O ye of little faith... Nucks are overdue to lose in regulation against a divisional rival; Wild need to bounce back after two poor games; that game is for the lead in the division; somebody is bound to crack Luongo's string of goose eggs; Gabby and Demitra together have been Canuck-killers when they've been healthy at the same time...

toivo: I actually did notice that, and I thought about our conversation too. I would have to say that, based on that game, Salvador could be worth more than I thought he was - no doubt. That $4M for Nick was part because I think he's worth it and part because I think that WILL be fair market value for him, either as established by us or another team.

tncl: Don't forget about Rolston's slapper! I have a fairly specific system I use when betting. I bet you can figure it out without too much difficulty.
