Exactly the problem. We are spending 3.4 Million on a 35 year old goaltender for the next 3 years who will be an average(if were lucky) or likely a below average starter in this league.

Im not saying Fletch could do much else I'm just saying I'm not thrilled with the idea of having Backstrom as our guy trying to steal us a playoff series in the next 3 playoffs.
