UFAs / Roster Changes/ Trades / Deadline Discussion 2011?

I was looking at the UFA for next year and I love Backes.

I would love if the ducks could use the money/cap from Teemu and sign Backes next season. That would give us a LEGIT 3 scoring lines with his centering the second line and letting koivu move to the third line as age kicks in.

He is making 2.5 right now and I would not be apposed to signing him to a 5 year 4-5 contract. 5 is pushing it but lets face it... we dont have any promising centers that look to be as good as Backes and we need secondary scoring since we are gonna be loosing Teemu.

Beleskey-Getzlaf-Perry
Ryan-Backes-Sexton
Blake-Koivu-Lupul

Also take into account that we still will have plenty of money/cap after signing him to sign a good defender assuming our budget goes up with the cap going up.

Vis-Fowler(assuming he progresses)/lydman
Sutton/UFA-Fowler/Lydman

Also I am confident that Sbisa will get his speed back and be ready next year.

Just bored this morning and wanted to know what you guys think about this.
