Now maybe if he's wanting McKee Brewer money, we might see him getting shipped off, but I think Backman is the odd man out. Backmans contract isn't that bad and he's only 26 years old.
I hope your right...I was thinking the same thing with Murray cocahing him. I never liked Quenneville, but I like what I see from Murray. And if he has confidence in Brewer...than maybe he will turn the corner.

But if Brewer doesn't turn the corner we are stuck with his 4.5 million a year, for the next 4 years.

And yes, I think Jackman will command Brewer/McKee money, because he is just as good (if not better).
