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.
You mean a maximum 3 year term, right? I don't think a lot of teams want to be locked into a goalie pushing 40 years old. He'll be in the $3m-$4m range and the 2-3 year range.
