Your pulling at straws...

Tanguay-Jokinen-Iginla What if they lose us some games?

Bourque-Jokinen-Iginla What if they lose us games?

Hagman-Stajan-Iginla What if they lose us games?

etc...

Did you also know that if a team starts to lose in a game that a coach can make lineup changes that same game?!
Training camp and pre-season are for this exact purpose. If Backlund can show signs of chemistry with Iginla, then why not? There is no harm in letting the future of our franchise try playing with one of the better players and leaders in the game. It can only help him to move forward, and learn from the best. The flames only have one really good prospect who is NHL ready, why stunt him by forcing him to play with 3rd liners all season.
