In addition to that Gardiner is also only a year younger than he Backlund, so it's not exactly like there is a huge discrepancy here in terms of where these players are at in their development.

I pass on this trade from a Calgary standpoint. Taking on Liles while losing Backlund in the process is simply not worth it.
I never said Gardiner has ever proved anything but that doesn't make Backlund a top 6 player. Why does overselling one player mean we have to take shots at another player?
