I have no clue if its the system or not, but something doesn't seem right.
Remove Backstrom from the Caps lineup and assume that Ribeiro doesn't stay. Then take a look at the Caps center depth for next year and tell me if you think the proposed trade would leave the Caps as a better team overall.

I'd rather the Caps take their chances that Backstrom returns to elite form than take a package of assets that have question marks of their own.
