Backstrom's not going anywhere unless it's for a gross overpayment. The plan has always been Backstrom starts this year going 1a 1b with Harding, Backstrom either retires, gets shipped off(possibly for cap space even though there aren't too many good resignings needed that year) or gets dealt at the deadline for something we need. Then Harding starts and gives Hackett a chance to get used to the pace of the NHL. That gets done and we see where we go from there. So unless there's some outrageous offer for Backstrom(Toews for Backs+Cullen, again the point is to be outrageous) it just won't happen.
