Commissioner Corner Message Board
And have to drop a player... likely Ruutu or Ponikarovsky
I think it will depend what line they finalize Backstrom to play on. If they keep him on 2nd line, away from Ovechkin, I don't think he'll pull out the numbers he could if he was on the first line.
i would do the deal.
a- Nabokov is a starter on an excellent team while Giguere is struggling to land a starting job.
b- Nick Lindstrum is way better than Kubina. (even if it is a keepers league)
c- alfie and Backstrom tough call, i personally wont want to part with Backstrom but then again u are getting more in return.
