Morrison should be #1 centre if he's healthy, no question. Backlund will do well transitioning from 4th line work to 3rd line work. 1st line will be too much for him at this stage in his development, especially for 82 games.

I'm sure some people will just be completely outraged if he's not handed the #1 center position, but I'm willing to bet good money that he does not get it. It seems everyone has him penciled in as a career #2 center except for Flames fans, who think he's a no brainer first liner next year, and I just don't get it. Not quite good enough, and more importantly not consistent enough to be trusted with a spot between our two best offensive players. We know BMO can not only do it, but do it well. He's been doing it for 10 years. Now that's a no brainer if you want to see the team win.
