The Wild goalie
What would a playoff contender want for him down the stretch to help with a playoff push or in the playoffs? Maybe to a team like the Caps if their goalies start to falter.
(I dont care if you think he wont get traded and will re-sign in Minny)
Aren't the Wild a playoff contender who need him down the stretch for a playoff push? Theodore's game would have to really go to heck really fast for McPhee to start looking at goaltenders and even then the Caps wouldn't want to give up all that much for Backstrom. McPhee needs to make other moves before he looks at the goaltender position, because as I see it right now the Caps are more than a goalie away from a legit shot at a cup. Also salary Cap would be a problem. Not an ideal fit in my mind.
