Wake up!



I dont think you do if your taking on over $3m in money each year and a total of $20m+

Money and cap hit are a HUGE asset in todays NHL!

This is why M. Richards/B. Richards/Thorton got moved for what they did.

Backstrom would be no different.
This is Nicklas Backstrom. Yea it's a big caphit but if he is available you don't argue but take it and then consider the cap hit. I like richards, brad or mike but they haven't hit 100 points, either of them yet. If you like Kopitar, and want him in our team, Backstrom is close as we can get to finding one.

Also Brad was a free-agent, when he was traded that was a team desperate to get rid of him due to their financial situation. Thornton situation was different as well, I don't even know what the hell happened, i Mean it's still all weird talking about it.
