Good signing. People are too tough on the kid - injuries, a "Brent Sutter System" and his age are all contributing factors. He was never a top 5 lottery pick, so it will take time for him to get into the groove. Last year people say it was a disappointing year, but he was really good defensively, and his CORSI stats were awesome. He really drove possession.

I actually look for big things from Backlund this year. Hopefully he will not have any freak injuries.
