Solid debut for Backlund. Had a few good chances and was solid defensively. Definetly has improved since the preseason. If he can fill out a bit I don't see why he can't make the flames next season. The one area he struggled was at the faceoff dot going 2 for 7 if I remember correctly. That should improve as he gets stronger so not really a huge deal right now.
Probably on his way to Kelowna as the trade deadline is Saturday and I'm pretty sure he would need to be assigned there by then to play for the Rockets. If Bertuzzi can't go on Tuesday I would think Sutter would probably call up someone from Quad Cities.
