I just said that in the other thread.
With Backman as the 7th man, thats a pretty versatile defense. If sanguinetti is ready, maybe you can trade off Tyutin and get the winger you need for Gomez at the deadline. This might be possible now that the cap increase almost certainly making Sather salivate all over himself.
If you build around your goaltender with that defense, still have a very potent powerplay and find some simple and effective moves and/or signings for your two top centers (what the hell maybe even Malone, for size) thats a pretty solid lineup. Throw the surrounding cast of Dawes, Cally, Betts, Sjostrom, etc.. and you have a solid forechecking team that can draw penalties, put the puck in the net (hopefully) and be a dangerous special teams unit.
And surprise, Jagr wasnt even mentioned.
