NHLTR: Bruins trading David Backes to Western Conference

The Boston Bruins are trying to shed some salary for next season while making a move for this season's playoff run. David Backes was 'sent down' a few weeks ago, and it appears the team has been working the phones to try and find the veteran a new home.

Backes is due $4.925 million next season and at 35 years old and not getting any quicker, the market has been slim for Backes' services.  He's scored only 1 goal in 16 NHL games this season.

Lots of chatter surrounding the move, as we expect Backes to be changing teams this weekend.

And just like that, minutes after this post, Backes dealt to the Ducks ;)
