Hey man, I'm with you! If Feaster can get Berglund and Cole for Backlund and Bouwmeester, then I'm not gonna complain. Just trying to put in perspective that a deal that seems to be in favor of one fanbase is usually not enough in reality. Meanwhile the other fan base is asking for what seems to be unrealistic. 9/10 times, it usually lies in the middle, and I'm just trying to be objective because I know Berglund is an enormous asset to the Blues and we would likely only get him if Gio was put in play.

Glad to see Aliu back.

Looking forward to seeing how he does in TC. I really liked what I saw from him in those two games last season when he was called up.

Its not like he is going to have a big cap it or something.
Feaster is simply exercising intellectual honesty. See he knows that if he signs Backlund that he's going to buckle under the pressure of a NTC, so he tries to trade Backlund before negotiations begin.

If I was Backlund I'd sign a 3 year 1.5 million contract.

Agreed.

But you really never know what gms are thinking tbh. We all take shots at bouwmeester, but he is still touted by tons. As fans it's hard to remove that fan aspect that influences deals we make or want.

Whatever happens I'm expecting decent things. I think it's a big sign that backs hasn't started contract talks.

Hi, I have a question :

Last year of Aliu's salary was $765,000 so he should get a 5% increase what give us a $803,250, but Aliu received only $695,000. Can anyone explain it to me ? It's because his last contract was entry-level, and then you don't have keep all the rules for increases ?

I'm sorry for my english

He had a bonus, his base salary was lower than $765,000

Steinberg reporting we'll likely hear news on Backlund today. Probably a 1 year deal.

Going to be really torn if I hear Backlund's been traded. Can't help but to think it would be absolutely amazing if he managed to break out on the Flames this season and be one of the (few) lifers.

I'm pretty give or take with Backlund. If he stays, OK. If he goes, oh well...

If he can realistic be moved in a deal for a good C, don't let the door hit you on the way out!
