Can't get any better with this trade, Tyutin's good and all but that contract was a little hard to swallow at this particular time with his declining play as of late, and Backman... well, that's just great to get rid of his cap.
Ok I love Niko but let's not get carried away here. Tyutin's contract was perfect for his services. A lot better than the overpayment and cap mismanagement we made by resigning Rosy for 5 m a year yesterday.
Man I hope we get Orpik now! Please! We lost some sandpaper we had from Fedor and now need some serious toughness back there or were gonna get pushed around.
Eklund just confirmed this deal is done 2 for 2.
