Backlund has played, what 11 games? Backlund is also getting sheltered minutes. While I admit (again) he has looked better, this is a contract year for him. I hope I'm wrong about him. But what difference will it make when he'll land a Max 2-3 year deal and walk? Or at least hit his prime somewhere else, even if it's only 50 points. He's replaceable IMO.
