Exactly. Give him some ice-time, especially since everything this coaching staff has tried already has not worked. Why not let Backlund run the PP and play some first line minutes with Iggy and Tangs. It makes no sense not to give him the opportunity.

Regardless of Stajan being a first line centre or not, I still don't care for what he brings to the table. Way to passive of a player, guys like that will never push a team to win a cup. When the playoffs roll around no team could turn to a guy like Stajan and have a prayer of winning a tough series. Stajan is mediocre at everything and special at nothing. Poor choice to sign to a big extension, way to be Sutter.
