You think a struggling overpaid goalie gets you a first with the glut of goalies on the market?
Listen man, I have a hard time believing The Monster or Giggy will backstop you a Cup run. There is a reason Burke is looking for a different netminder. Is Backstrom overpaid? After 2010 playoffs, almost every goalie is. For a team like the Wild who is mediocre with little cap space, of course I included him for relief but it doesn't mean he is awful. His stats aren't so bad when you weigh in the incompetent / untalented / slow defensemen in front of him.

By the way, I'm suggesting a second, not a first.
