22 years old, playing in a role that's not suited for him isn't doing him any favors.
We saw the same thing with the Habs this year when Martin kept putting Lars Eller on a 3rd/4th line reducing his minutes, and trying to mold him into a defensive role
No doubt this was a dissapointing season for him, but I certainly think it's too early to write off Backlund. Unless he is part of a package that would bring in something big, I hope Calgary keeps him
I've got season tickets next season and would LOVE to see him and Sven light it up
