The difference this year is not everyone is mad like they were last year with the Legend deal.


Very true.

Why? I was reading he got frustrated and went home to Sweden. For the second year in a row Kenny got something in return for a player who was :crybaby:
 
Edit:
Oh wait, my mistake, Backman went home. Still, Janmark is 22, just like Jarnkrok, he should have played a game or 2 on the Wings by now... Good trade.


I agree it was a good trade, I just knew people would be mad. And they are.

It all depends. Toronto is very eager to get rid of him, and it seems like the issue of how much salary Toronto would eat was the only thing holding up a deal last time they talked, if you believe the gossip. So if Toronto eats some salary, it may get done. 
 
Janmark had some upside, but I don't think Backman was ever going to play here. I actually think this was a decent deal. 


What else would be involved in a Dion trade besides salary retention? Surely they'd want a first.
