They should be better and Backstrom should be more well protected this year with Suter on the back end and a great 2 way forward in Parise. However Backstrom is old and injury prone.. and in a condensed year with a very very good back up (Harding) I don't expect Backstrom to play enough games to trade for him.
As a word of caution about Bryz.. rumor has it that the Flyers might try to get Luongo. And before anyone says "there is no way", the Flyers aren't known for being a patient organization and have 2 contract buyouts that they can use. I really wouldn't be surprised if the Flyers traded some of their forward depth for Luongo so they had 2 good goalies this year (with the condensed season) and then let them battle it out and buyout the loser at the end of the year. Just a thought on that.. you never know with Philly.
