I'd do the OP deal. We have an excess of forwards with promise and while we have a lot of D, they're mostly not of Rundblad's potential. We'd have to get rid of a few of them, too, for the space. The team did sign harding for a reason, though. Purely speculation but i think Harding got the deal he did only because they figure Backstrom will cost too much to extend. I think counting on a Harding/Hackett tandem after next year is a really risky idea if we want to get through the playoffs, but what can you do? It's still better than a Labarbara/Hackett duo.

Ideal world where Backs stays for $3-$4m I'd do this deal in a heartbeat.
