B. A year from now, I don't know if he would see the Leafs as less of a contender than the Hawks. The Leafs would pay him more, that's for sure. They'll probably go hard after Perry too.
A. There are still other options for Backstrom, like San Jose, or a 1A/1B with Bryzgalov.

B. Backstrom likely only has 2-3 good years left; the Leafs don't need a stop gap, they need someone who will actually be their starter for the next 5+ years.
