Seguin will be Boston's 90pt guy soon. That's the thing with Boston right now, they can keep their roster together & improve just by doing that. Look at the ages of their core guys, Seguin, Marchand, Lucic, Bergeron, Krejci...I think the oldest guy there is Krejci at 26.
Backstrom is a top notch player, but Boston cant survive losing 2 top-6 forwards. IMO Krejci + Marchand have a greater impact on a game than having Backstrom alone.
Backstrom is certainly > Krejci,, but that difference isnt a 23yr old 30 goal scoring aggitating winger.
That said, I clearly understand why Caps dont touch this deal, teams just dont trade away elite centers just to shake-up the roster (unless ofcourse youre Mike O'Connell)
