You aren't going to find a better deal on the free agent market.

It will be Harding for a few reasons. First, Backstrom does have a two-year NTC that can be extended by incentives he will most likely hit. Second, not too many teams can afford a goalie with that contract hit; plus given the difference between the fifth and twentieth goalie it usually is not worth it. Third, Harding is the best chip Fletcher has left in his arsenal and while I doubt it will be foolishly spent, there will be a market for him around the draft and there are still a couple holes to fix. If Harding gets traded, I expect it to be then.
