makes defense better, we overpaid and too many years but i think it will be worth it for the first 4 years, they could always buy im out 5 years from now if he stops producing and it only money out of Dolans pocket)
Backman will be in the AHL for sure now unless they can move him. a trade has to come for sure, with all the depth signings, and not much money left to fill in our top 6 holes. gotta believe Tyutin, Girardi, and perhaps gulp Staal will be moved along with perhaps some forwards for a top 6...
No offense guys, but as a Sens fan here, I hope the guy turns around his game, but we all honestly believe this guy has been done for a while. It was always his first pass that he was known for but that even has left him in the last two seasons.
It's a ridiculous amt of money to give the guy, and I can't honestly say that Manhattan is the best environment for him. I wish him well though and would love to see him be the comeback player of the year. He is a great community guy as well.
