from Norm Sanders of the News-Democrat,
Without tipping his hand toward any potential trades, Davidson on Friday shot down a Canadian-based trade rumor that had Blues forward David Backes headed to the Vancouver Canucks.
“David Backes isn’t going anywhere,” Davidson said. “There’s nothing to it. We all do our scouting, but the facts are the facts: David Backes isn’t going anywhere. People just love to speculate.”
A report in the Toronto Globe and Mail suggested that Vancouver—which signed Backes to a three-year, $7.5 million offer sheet in July of 2008 that was quickly matched by the Blues—was interested in a potential deal.
The report suggested the Blues were interested in Canucks goaltending prospect Cory Schneider, who is playing for Vancouver’s top farm team, the Manitoba Moose.
