Here's the GA of each team Biron and Backstrom started for (50%+ of total GP).

Biron
204
200
219
221
233
246 (projected)
----------------------------------------
221 PER SEASON / 2.69 GAA


Backstrom
191
218
185 (projected)
----------------------------------------
198 PER SEASON / 2.41 GAA

The Wild consistently give up less goals than the dead puck era Sabres, and modern Flyers.

Better Goalie
I'll take the better goalie, as long as his name is Luongo.
