Backstrom (Caps) to Canadiens

To be fair, the teams make poor trading partners considering Backstrom to Habs and the current need in Washington (Goalie), Habs would be in a tough spot to move Price to the Caps and the Caps in turn would be in a tough spot to move their #1C to Montreal.

All in all, it's a study in a hypothetical situation like any other trade prop or value of thread.

Fair to say that Caps fans would want Plekanec + Subban for Backstrom+?

No way caps would add to that deal. I still wouldn't take it for just Plecks ad Subban.

Wow . Thats quite a statement coming from someone whos team is going in the wrong direction harder than anyone's. I think Price would be a huge upgrade in nets for you. Subban, Markov or Georges could crack ur D . I have a feeling you would love to get rid of ovie and his massive deal. Backstroms good but I wouldn't give up the farm for him.

The next person who makes reference to Ovie as someone we want to rid ourselves of is getting pumped in the head. Plus you included Price and Gorges who you probably wouldn't even move. Don't just throw out names.

Well try and be serious. The habs have no-one to get the caps on the phone. Based on early results maybe the Caps are gonna be sellers this year. If that is the case I would expect your gm would be answering all calls.

People underestimate Plekanec a lot.

this would only work if the Habs traded Price and we all know that's not gonna happen.

not interested in Backstrom. He would cost way too much to make worth it for The Habs.

The value isn't bad, but Caps don't have a pressing need to add a puck moving right defenseman. They already have four in Green, Carlson, Orlov, and Kundratek. Upgrading the 2RD spot is not worth losing Backstrom.

As much as I want backstrom in mtl I wouldn't give all mtl asset for it ... But to have a backstrom and galy duo at centre would be crazy nice !!

Good, because I wouldn't give Subban for Backstrom straight up, at this point in time. We have far more of a need for a defenceman like Subban than a center like Backstrom. That is not an insult to Backstrom, but I want to see more out of him, and I want to watch how he handles himself this season, after that brutal injury last year.

Besides, we would need to be getting better at scoring goals and Subban has double the goals Backstrom does so far. Why would we downgrade our offensive output like that?...

(Before a fight ensues: 1st paragraph was serious. 2nd paragraph was teasing.)

Either would I. It makes no sense for the Habs, I would rather trade Pleks and Subban for future pieces, tank and then draft a top centre in the draft in the draft like Barkov or even Lindholm.
