Backes

On sources say they were talking about him potienally being moved.

What would it take for the Leafs to get Backes?

Too much. Versteeg++. He is a vital piece to a young St. Louis team. He is their on ice leader and their only true power forward. He won't be traded, as St. Louis will need him for the playoffs.

He wants 5 million dollars. He doesn't want to be in St.Louis. I was thinking more like

D'Amigo, Blacker 2nd round pick.

Where the **** did you get this?

And the offer is sub-par, at best.

Nick Kypreos said he is looking for Ryan Kesler money and St. Louis is not willing to pay it yet.

Really? I was wondering why you put Sportsnet as the caption...

But still. They won't trade Backes.

Really? At $5M a season? I wouldn't take him as a UFA fo $5M a season.

That being said, your offer value wise isn't that great...I might trade that for a rental.

Blues have Allen and Halak, netminder wise. And Bieksa is being chased out of Vancouver.

Did you hear Backes say that he doesn't want to be in St. Louis, or did you hear someone else say Backes didn't want to be in St. Louis?

ya thats a good point about the goalies, and bieksa is being chased out by the fans, but the management plays him 22+ min a game for a reason.

If, purely hypothetically, St. Louis felt they needed to trade Backes, would Gunnarson/Grabovski + D'Amigo + 3rd Get it done?

Make it: Grabo + Gunnar + Ross. I think that's fair, at the deadline if St. Louis was out of contention or in 7th/8th place.

Yes. They would let him walk as a UFA. The team with Backes is much better and will have a better chance of getting to the playoffs with him and advancing then without him.

We have a ton of depth in the organization and dont need to add more. We need to make the playoffs. For a cash strapped team that is very important.

Don't think the Blues could afford to take on that contract. Maybe Gagner?

This thread is an overreaction to a stupid comment made by someone who is known for making stupid comments. While I don't doubt Backes is looking for every dollar he can get, that is a long way from saying he doesn't want to be in St. Louis.

I would be willing to do a deal like that, but the thing is, why would St. Louis take on even more salary than they would have had they just resigned Backes?
