Not according to his usage charts

in 2010-2011 Backlund played 26.6% of the 5v5 with Glencross, he played with Hagman 26% of the time and Iginla 23.3%. All 3 played almost none with each other and Hagman was primarly on the 3rd line before be put on waivers. So Backlund played much more off the 4th line then on in fact he only played with Tko and Jackman 22% of the time. Of course he played less minutes per game with Jackman and Tko but he played much more than just on the 4th line.
