Backstrom is clearly a great player... but is he what Boston needs to take the next step? Does Boston hurt their depth too much with this trade? Does it mess up the cap too much?

Our cup was won without a Backstrom type being the goto guy... Washington has been a playoff failure with a couple guys like this not being enough to get the job done.

Without depth you dont win these days... LA/CHICAGO did it with depth too.

Personally... I guess Boston would probably technically win this trade as far as on ice talent goes if all else was equal... but I think theres much better directions to move in. Moving Seguin to center... allowing him to be our special player... trading Krecji for a wing. Keeping depth.
