Disgree with that. Backlund should be a 40pt guy easy playing with Iggy. We almost made the playoffs last year with someone producing that much centring the 1st line.

I don't like the lines tho.

Jokinen was also tried on the wing with the national team and I remember seeing a quote that had their coach say he was horrible as well.
