1. Mikael Backlund has the best On-Ice Corsi ranking on the team
2. He plays the second most difficult minutes of all forwards (trailing only Iginla)
3. He would be on pace for 30 goals, and 45 points in a full season
4. He is only 23 years old.

The absolute last thing this team needs to do is to trade their best three zone player player at even strength who just so happens to be 23 years old for a one dimensional, soft, 33 year old UFA. It just does not make any sense.

Put your "GM Hat" on for a second and explain to me how that would be properly managing a young asset on this team when considering the state they are in today.

Mike Ribeiro is not a #1 center.
