Unless playing in the A this year has done wonders for him (which, judging by his stats, it hasn't), there's no way he is either NHL-ready or even almost on Boucher's level, let alone a better option to turn to
down the stretch run, when experience matters.
all indication from people who have seen the phantoms play this year (aka: not me) has pointed towards backlund playing very well and being much improved behind a very bad team. but, no, of course he's not a better option.
