There is plenty of teams that would be interested in him if he was available, he is an upgrade to a few teams in the league.
Its a tough situation because of Harding's MS. i think the team was baking on going Harding/Backstrom and then trading Backs at deadline to call up Hackett/Kuempur but that didn't work out.
This is now a situation where Backstrom has all the cards, he can demand 4-5 mil with a minimum 3 year term and GMCF may not have much choice if he still wants to make the playoffs other then giving the job to a rookie.
