Would I use Backlund to move from 17/18 to 10? No. He's a good second line center that has been a bright spot in an otherwise very dim season (along with Brodie). Plus at like that 10-20 range there's really nothing certain. Unless a player like Ristolainen, Monahan Zadorov or Lindholm really slips (they won't); it's not worth it.
Agree with you.
