Backes still on the board, not happy about it
David Backes is still on the board as of round 10. He's not pleased about it.

He realizes that perhaps fighting everyone at the All-Star Game probably didn't win him any friends for an event like this, but he's not backing down. He said whoever doesn't pick him can look forward to getting drilled on Sunday.

Of course, he might have to hit Nick Lidstrom, something Backes said he hasn't done in 5 years.
Quote of the Day

It's a date that's been circled on my calendar, so it's kind of nice to have it here and get it over with (Thursday). This is a little bit of the closing of the book on the move. That's kind of how I'm looking at it.
