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

He seemed to thrive on his own and didn't really need any push from me. I certainly don't want to get in the way of the coaches. You see how that goes sometimes. I never really worried about it and just enjoyed the ride.
