I wonder if Fletch will start talking to Backs about waiving the NTC this summer. Wouldn't be expected, but there are a couple teams looking for good goaltending, and it's obvious he won't be back here after next year. Trade to Tampa maybe, and try and work an extension?
Not so sure about that. I wouldn't be surprised to see Backstrom signed to a 1 year deal so he could help Hackett break into the NHL, especially if Harding is gone.
