He played one or two games with Jackman, and Glencross was on of our top scorers for the first month and a half. He's a playmaking center, so until he proves that he can help make the players around him better I'm not buying into this Backlund on the first line sentiment. Not while we're still in the playoff race anyways. You guys are expecting him to do things that are beyond his capabilities right now. I think the coaches have a good sense of what he can do right now (as they are around him every single day) and they are using him accordingly.
