I don't think there's really an acquire Backstrom 'movement'. Theres just discussion around the bottom feeders and who could become available. Backstrom is probably the last guy who would be on the Caps. Washington could do a little retool on the fly if they like. Backstrom, johansson, Forsberg, Neuvirth/Holby, Alzner and Carlsson. That's a great core in addition to potentially the #1 overall pick and maybe a handsome return for Ovechkin and Green if they go down that road.

They don't have anyone coming up who could replace Backstrom but if for some reason they did move him I'd sell the farm for him. We dont have a legit left handed playmaker in the system and a line with Silf and Backstrom would be incredible under Maclean.

The other guys I'd look at are Laich and Green. Green is a HF pariah but I'd take him here in this system with sheltered minutes under Karlsson.
