I cant see us getting much back for Backlund after his season of injuries.
He's one of my favorite flames to watch as we don't have a ton of guys on the team capable of stripping pucks away. If his hands get back to 100% I think he could be a clear cut top 6 player who works his butt off every night.
Obviously not untouchable but value is nothing now and I don't think it will stay that way.
There really has to be something workable between these teams though as we have filled up our top 9 in the NHL while Toronto is probably looking for a guy that can grow with Colbourne and/or Frattin.
Our top 2 defensive prospects will be Wotherspoon and Sieloff about 2 weeks into the NHL season when Brodie graduates (I like all 3 of these guys but it is pretty weak); while Toronto is stacked with young NHL defense man and Morgan Reilly is a stud.
