I'm actually really excited to see what he can do. I have a feeling he's going to be a player for us. Hopefully he's good to go by Saturday.

Hopefully he becomes our top line center and people stop writing us off so easily, no pressure

This could really go either way, he is a player for sure based on what I've seen in international competitions, but it's so hard to predict how his type of player will perform on the bigger stage. I'm hoping for a boom, and for him to be able to win some draws for us. I'm not holding my breath for the latter, but it would be nice.

Not sure how long he would have to be off his Blood thinners to be able start taking contact. Could be a couple of weeks before he is in the lineup.

He is medically cleared to play Saturday so it sounds like he should be fine.

This guy better be able to win a face-off. As much as I'm appreciating Backlund's new confidence, I really wish he spent the summer working on his game in the circle.

Backlund had a fo% of 45% last year and threw 2 games is at 42% that isn't terrible.

For comparison, Jiri Hudler has been at ~45% in 08-09 and 09-11, two seasons among his most frequent for taking faceoffs.

Hudler hasn't played center regularly since he destroyed the AHL in 2005-06, and yet he's still as good as Backlund on the dot? Dun dun dun...

Hey guys, Flyers fan coming in peace. I'm so happy for Cervenka finally getting a shot in the NHL. As for the faceoffs, there are his stats from KHL http://en.khl.ru/players/16827/ . It seems that he didn't take as many faceoffs as a few of his teammates but his percentage is usually slightly under/above 50 percent and in the last 2 seasons went way higher. Hopefully he can keep it up.

He has real good hands and vision isn't overly strong on his feet but doesn't look out of place at all.

His hands are quick, and he definitely has skill. He looks like he's adjusting to the pace of the game with each shift.

Good to hear! I've been following for years and was hoping he'd come over to the NHL eventually. I wish him and the Flames all the best!

Looks very opportunistic. Him and Hudler have played together before and look like they could have good chemistry once their timing gets better.
