Washington-Boston

Don't think our GM does anything to shake up the core but out of lockout boredom...

Washington trades:
Nicklas Backstrom
Jason Chimera

Boston trades:
David Krejci
Brad Marchand
2013 2nd or 2014 1st.

Boston keeps Seguin at wing.


Please flame away. I like the abuse.

I don't think Washington fans are going to like this...at all. Backstroke is worth quite a bit more IMO.

I doubt there's a single player on the Bruins roster that could convince Wahington to give up Backstrom. Chara is the only one with equivalent talent, but he's a decade older.

Why in the world would the Caps do this?

I don't see any realistic deal to be made here.

There's some quality assets coming from Boston, to be sure, but Backstrom is special player, and the Caps have absolutely no need to move him.

That seems pretty rough for Washington. What's their motivation? They just seem to get worse with this, while Boston adds a world class center.

There's literally nobody on Boston's roster that would tempt me to trade Backstrom.

Bergeron is clearly an elite 2-way player, but Backstrom is a special offensive player. Bergeron will likely never crack 80 points; Backstrom did it twice before his 24th birthday.

Lolol

Bergeron is qaulity bruhh, but Backstrom is on a different level. Backstrom is one of the top centres in the league.

I'd take the 2014 1st deal and laugh all the time. I don't doubt, I know the caps would never do this.

Needless to say Caps decline.

Boston isn't looking for centers anyhow.

Caps are poised to make a solid run, Ovechkin rebounds, & I love the Ribeiro addition. Although I think he's a 'puke', he is definitely talented. His antics will make B's Capitals games that much more interesting. Ott & Ribeiro in the East = popcorn time!

Backstrom is worth more than any individual player on Boston. It would take Seguin++ to get him, and even then Washington would probably decline.

Trading off Marchand for Chimera as part of a package deal, that's the funny part.

Yeah, but what if we offer our biggest asset and give you the rights to the Carl Soderberg.
