If St.Louis didn't think Backes had the skill to play in the top 6 in the next couple years there's a possibility they don't match. It was worth a shot.
It was definitely worth a shot. I thought it was a very reasonable offer sheet. Not like the Vanek/Penner fiascos. I even thought Kesler's offer was too much last year. He'll wind up earning it, but he was sooooo inexperienced that $1.9m seemed exhorbitant at the time.
Anyway, have a great 2008-2009 season.
