Hmm, very interesting indeed. He's a big, physical RW'er who could potentially score 20+ goals. Perfect fit for the Sedins IMO.
Edit: 2nd round pick compenstion. Can't see Blues walking away from this, but then again, they do have a lot of young forwards on the cusp so perhaps they don't want to commit that much to a player that could be a 3rd liner for them.
David Backes is a hitting machine. Like this offer.
Kesler on his way out to improve scoring?
how does adding Backes affect Kesler?
Backes fills one of the two big holes the team has on right wing... Kesler is still the team's top shutdown guy... not to mention that AV still loves him and uses him a lot... I don't think that Gillis will move him out that easily.
