Im personally not ready to give up on Backs, im thinking and hoping him and Baertschi get paired together and Backlund breaks out.
Too many d-men.

We have

Subban
Markov
Diaz
Gorges
Emelin
Kaberle

ahead of him.

Problem is, while we can have weber as #7 D, our d core is severly lacking an extra shutdown punch. Diaz is also available tbh. Kaberle is available but no one will pay and the other PMD Ds are subban and Markov. Markov missed nearly 2 years and subban isn't getting moved to make space for a defensive d-man. We're left with weber and Diaz. We could just as easily suggest Diaz for a struggling prospect but Diaz can play already and would be worth more than that.
