Leafs and Blues discussing David Backes?

Did anyone else hear that? This guy on the TSN 1050 thinks that there is a lot of chatter going on between the Blues and Leafs recently, and the one name that popped out is David Backes.

The guy also said he doesn't think it will necessarily happen but he says it will take Gardiner + Frattin + going other way to get the Blues moving.

Why would St. Louis trade their captain for a bunch of maybe's?

Gardiner + Frattin + Not Rielly/Kadri/Kessel?

Won't happen though.

Backes has a NTC. Doubt he'd waive it.

So does Andy Mac, who's a more likely acquisition. I see the Ducks making a push for him though.

What the? Does that guy have no credibility. Forget the fact that he is our captain and Selke caliber, we barely have enough centers as it is and this would leave us with 2 top 9 centers.

Not going to happen, but I'd love it. Gardiner + Frattin + something might do it. Who knows, but it more than likely won't happen.

even though they have some leadership problems, there is no way the Blues trade Backes.

You gotta live the trade deadline: where everyone is available, according to reports, tweets, radio, yet they are not really.

Does this guy on TSN have a name?

Backes would be a great fit but it will not happen.

Backes has been playing pretty poorly, but doubt this happens due to our center depth.

Not sure, I tune in TSN radio daily at least once or twice and they mainly talk about the teams but when the Iginla topic came up, they started chattering about the trade talks around the league and he mentioned something along the lines of David Backes, Blues and Leafs.

I literally don't know anything about how reliable they are...

Why would St. Louis do this deal when they are in a better position than the Leafs for post season success with Backes in the line up? Sounds like a pipe dream in Leafland

Same. But I doubt it happens, doesn't make sense for the Blues.

Why would St. Louis do this?

I'd love it, but it seems insane.

I think Backes would veto any trade to a Canadian team on patriotic principle lol.

Now Simmons is talking about the past trade with Ducks that involved Gardiner and Lupul.
