That seems fair and is totally reasonable, but that's also precisely what I would say as GM even if I were looking to trade. Not a lot of trade partners on the goalie market, but also not a lot of goalies. If teams are interested in Backs, they will come to Fletch (not the other way around) and if he seems reluctant to deal, the return could be bigger.
hey, as long as fans from other teams are jelly it can't be all that bad. Like i said, i don't think it's a great deal but it surely isn't outrageous. Might even be tradeable.
