After the Kings St. Louis series I now love Backes. He is a beast.

Absolutely he could. The Rangers under Torts play just as much of a defensive system. Gaborik didn't play most of the year with Richards. They started out together, but didn't click, and didn't get put back together again until the end of the year.

And Gabby scored 42 (and 86 points) in his first year with the Rangers, when his centers were Dubinsky, Christensen and Prospal.

That being said, I don't see any reason for the blues to make this deal.

Oh come on. Gaborik has been playing in defensive minded systems with mediocre centers for his entire career.

I think we all agree at this point that the proposal doesn't work for either team. I can see a few deals between us, mostly in the form of one of our wingers(Perron, Stewart, D'Agostini) for one of your centers(Dubinsky, Anisimov, Boyle) or D men(MDZ or maybe Staal), but neither team would be open to swapping core players.

I would add Stepan to that mix of people I would be interested in, but I am not sure how difficult it would be to get him. I am guessing pretty hard.
