Some big news out of Minnesota as Niklas Backstrom re-signed with the Wild for four more years at a total of $24 mil. This ended a lot of trade speculation around the league about him going to the Caps most likely. Backstrom's one of those goalies that you can build a team around, like Kiprusoff, so the Wild are good shape for the next few years and could make big time statements in the league.
That also ends my very unlikely dream trade for the Wings at the deadline. Eh oh well.
