Are we talking about Mikeal Backlund? The guy who only had to compete with Matt Stajan for the first line, but instead both lost the job to a winger?

The guy who has Cammy, Iginla, Glencross, Stempniak, Hudler, Tanguay, Baertschi, Cervenka as wingers - and to a lesser extent Comeau and Horak - yet still can't make that jump to the next step? Plus he was given the first line last year!

If you say so.
