I'm with the majority here...keep the Byfuglien. The reality is that right now Backstrom isn't even in the top 10 of F and Byfuglien has to be in the top 5 D easily with all those cats. I think this would be a dicey call even if Backstrom was lighting it up [and he's not] given how hard it would be to replace all those points on D.
9 Team [keep 10 + 3 prospects]
