Obviously Backs is the man right now but maybe that 6 million off the books could even be moved with Minny so tight up against the cap.

I dunno. What's the general feeling on this.
If Backs is solid, I could see him attracting attention on the UFA market - he is only a year older than Luongo after all.

No way he stays here for a major pay cut IMO, unless he really wants to stay.
