Stl - Wsh

Stl:
Backstrom

Wsh:
Perron
Stewart
2nd

From what I've seen, Backstrom has not been playing the way he's capable of, and I think a change of scenery would do him good. Washington is in shambles right now, and I honestly don't see them trading Ovie, making Backstrom the next in line.

Blues roster would be:
McDonald-Backstrom-Tarasenko
Steen-Backes-Oshie
Schwartz-Berglund-D'Agostini
Sobotka-Nichol-Reaves

Schwartz could even be sent down to Peoria, it's clear he needs to develop more physically. Bring up Porter and move Sobotka to the 3rd line if we have to.

Wash:
Perron-Ribeiro-Ovie
Wolski-Johnasson-Stewart
Chimera-Laich-Brouwer
Hendricks-Beagle-Ward

Not sure how the Caps roster would look, the above is just a guess. The trade gives them a lot more depth throughout the lineup IMO, and with guys like Forsberg and Kuznetsov coming up in a couple years, I think they're roster will look very strong.

What do Caps fans feel about this proposal? Any potential to hash out a deal here, or are you guys satisfied with Backstrom's performance thus far?
