Backes had a good year but I'd like to see a bit better of a track record from him before I'd trade Kaberle.
Look at Stempniak- 27 goals a couple years back for St. Louis but he stinks now.
You can't trade Kaberle for a 25 year old who's had one good season.
This is a good point. Remember Mayers and Stemps? They played like men possessed with half sold arenas and a single reporter after the games. Numbers down there can be deceiving because of the little attention the team gets. Pressure can crack players, they need to either be completely calm guys or big personalities.
