That must be a joke, right?

Don't worry, I've watched 4 Flames games already and I too have been very impressed with Backlund.

Robin Lehner will be the starting goalie for the Ottawa Senators for the next 10 years if things continue the way they are. We have never had a Robin Lehner. We've had guys who have a couple good seasons before sucking/moving on (Lalime, Tugnutt, Emery, etc), but we've never had a potential "franchise" goalie, similar to your Kipper. In a city labelled the goalie graveyard, we're much more interested in seeing if Lehner can be our goalie of the future than acquiring a former bottom 6 player who has played outstanding for less than 10 games. We have amazing depth at Center, and an injury to our #1 center doesn't mean we have to give away our future.

TL;DR -- No. Lehner > Backlund considering our team needs.

The only trade that Murray should make is one that benefits the future as well (ala Turris).
If the price is right I think he could help this team a lot. If he re-signs then we've found the top 6 player we've been looking for.

I wouldn't want to give up a lot to only have him half the season, but he's a very interesting option.

Ottawa - Washington

If Washington are out of the mix and they turn into sellers, possibly a deal for Backstrom would work:

To Ottawa - Backstrom

To Washington - Zibby or 2013 1st + Ceci + Bishop

Putting Backstrom in the same class as Nash/Carter/Richards/Kessel in regards to potential return. Pehaps Ottawa might have to add someone like Puempel to the mix instead of Bishop to get it done but it would give Ottawa an elite top 6 and a legit chance if Spezza were to get healthy in time for playoffs...

Washington already has some nice young prospects in the system and could potentially add some more gems to the cupboard while Ottawa makes a push to seriously contend with the big boys (especially if Spezza returns). Ottawa loves their Swedes and a PP of Backstrom to Karlsson could be lethal...

No, Backstrom isn't available. Think Lehner + Zibanejad + Turris for them to listen.

I'd go streaking outside in -40 degrees if we managed to trade that for Backstrom... Spezza-Backstrom-Turris-Z.Smith down the middle would be crazy good.
