Backlund scored at a .5PPG pace last season despite averaging 3rd line minutes on a dreadful team and dealing with injury.

I'm not going to argue with you about Kadri, as he had an unbelievable season. However, Backlund is already scoring at a much higher pace than McClemant. He outscored Bolland last year. He's also just behind Bozak's pace, despite getting far fewer minutes/opportunities.

Him having no chance of developing into a better player than someone like McClemant is absurd. He's already better.
