Effort has never been the issue with Backlund. This being his "contract year" is not the reason for his current success.
Both Eller and Backlund have had fairly similar careers thus far. Backlund, however, seems to be turning a corner and has good chemistry with Baertschi. Meanwhile, Eller is off to a bad start. There is absolutely no reason for the Flames to make this deal at this point.
This would have made a good "change of scenery" trade last year, but right now Backlund is working for the Flames.
