Thats a freaking awesome reason actually if you think about it. What is the reason you want to keep him exactly?
What exactly is the point of carrying a 29 year old goalie on your AHL roster (and starting him no less) when you have a glut of goalie prospects who could benefit from AHL starts?
It's not like Backlund is "ready" either. No one here has confidence in him to backup in the NHL, so really, I see no point at all in keeping him. He can't be trusted to backup in the NHL, and he cant be considered a prospect. So therefore he is wasted roster space. It would benefit us to clear his contract off our 50-man limit anyway and give Bob the AHL starting job.
