    [size=12pt]Wild re-sign goaltender Backstrom to 2-year contract[/size]

    MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- The Minnesota Wild added depth and complication to their goalie situation by re-signing Niklas Backstrom to a two-year, $6.2 million contract on Thursday.

    Backstrom went 23-8-6 with five shutouts in 41 games, taking over when Manny Fernandez got hurt and steering the Wild toward their first playoff appearance in four years with an unexpected performance.

    "I have to pinch myself. It's like I'm in a dream," Backstrom said. "I was surprised how fast and smooth everything went last season."
    YES!!!

    Bye, bye, Manny!

    Thanks to Josdin for the awesome sig!

    Very good signing. Will be sad to Manny go though, he's been a terrific servant and is a great goal-tender when he gets his head right.

    harding also looked very good this year, so manny is surely gone..this is a good thing, and hopefully we can get some sort of talented power forward or defenseman in a trade
    People who see life as anything more than pure entertainment are missing the point.
