My point is, in the past you have often valued Glencross as a 30 goalscorer in previous trade proposal threads based on pro rating his numbers. I'll admit it's a 'little' bit different of a situation as you illustrated, but you have made a similar argument. I'm not going to sort through you 10k posts over the years either.

Regardless this is about Backlund. I want to see out of him what you want, I'm confident we'll see it next season with the opportunity he will get here. I also think a top 6C is valued the same as a top 4D. All things being equal and they hit their upside, I think their values are very close.
