More like he is surprised that Backstrom gets no credit for any of the wins. It's always "Parise saved us" or "Zucker was awesome," stuff like that. People rarely mention Backs.

Personally, I've changed my stance on him lately. I would like to see him brought back for next season at $2-3 million a year. Max I'd say is $3.5 or somewhere around there. Kuemper + Backstrom could work very well next season.
I'd re-sign Bäcks too with a salary like that barring there's no better goalies available / price. I just don't think he'd be willing to sign a year deal... but he's solid enough, IMO.

E: There's a young Finnish goalie named Joni Ortio. Played AHL a year (or two?) ago and Calgary owns his rights. They have pretty good goaltending coming and still have, so I think you could get him with a cheap price. He's been great in FEL this season.

E2: Dunno if it would be a good idea to have two young goalies at the same time, tho.
