The guy has a HUGE contract and if we are taking that much money on with the cap going down to 64M, there would be compensation of fewer assets!

That is why we got Gardiner and Lupul for Beauchemin... Do u honestly think the Ducks had no idea that Gardiner was good? They had him ranked as their 2nd highest prospect when they traded him to us.

Taking on his contract = less assets going the other way

Bozak + Frattin + 1st would be the max for Backstrom
More than half the league would be interested if Backstrom was available meaning he wouldn't come cheap. You don't think teams like Buf, Cal, CLB, Edm, Det, Mtl, Ott, NJ, Wpg, Stl, Van, etc would be interested?
