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.
Brad didn't hit a 100 pts but he hit 91 pts and has a con smyth! That trumps Backstrom 101 pts... Also Brad wasn't playing with the best winger on earth at that time.

Backstrom would be no different that Mike/Brad or Joe if moved. He has an Albatross contract and is not playing great dominant hockey since 09/10'.

It seems he needs a change of scenery just like Brad/Mike/Joe and if that is the case expect a similar price.

also nobody has given 1 example of a #1 center in a trade that was a complete overpayment given a massive contract... i have given 3 examples
