STL Forward David Backes is apparently on the Canucks radar. So much so that Mike Gillis and emsemble were spotted at the St. Louis / Ottawa game this week.
As STLToday.com reports, Backes was a mysterious scratch. There was also speculation that the Canucks may be interested in the Blues' defensive depth, including former Canuck Mike Weaver, and former Maple Leaf Carlo Colaiacovo.
You might remember David Backes as the recipient of some infamous trash talking from Alex Burrows and Ryan Kesler during last year's playoff series between the two teams.
