I disagree, we don't need another high paid player, and Backstrom won't be getting anything close to what he is making this year (assuming you mean the goalie Backstrom)

What we need are lower line players with grit and that can pot a few goals when our stars struggle.

Buying out Oduya instead of Montador saves us 630k, but makes our team worse, especially if Montador can't stay healthy.
