Great price. Time to show what you're made of Backlund. You have the tools.

I somehow get the feeling HF will find a way to somehow trash this signing too.

good job, Feaster. Making up for the Wideman deal. Even though Wideman's deal isn't that bad after seeing all of the other signings lately. And someone was going to give Carle and Wideman too much anyways.

I know he had an injury prone year and hasn't put up pts but his cap hit went down? Fairly decent 2-way player, thought he'd get the same or at least 1.5.

Considering his poor season, this is about right. Hopefully he can play well enough to earn a big contract next off season.

I wish our #1 centre was making 725k...

Good deal for him though.

They won't. But they will probably trash the player. Or the Flames. Just to trash for trashing's sake.

Flames fans everywhere are amazed that maybe the Wideman deal was really bad.
Considering that one really hated on the Hudler and Backlund deals.

Why only 1 year? Was it a QO? Nice price though.

Well well, I guess it offsets Wideman's 1st year

Great price. Considering $1,110,249 means no compensation, and $3,364,391 requires just a 2nd rounder, a signing like this really shows how loathe GMs seem to be in tendering offer sheets.

Good for Calgary.

I don't like him, but you can't beat that price and it is not like the market is drowning in centers, so it's a pretty sweet "prove me" contract actually.

Should have waited and announced that they signed Backlund and Wideman together for under 6.0 million cap hit... would have made Feaster look like a genius.

I've always had faith in Backlund, the guy seems to have such a great attitude towards the game, I just want him to succeed so much. Signing for less than his QO as well is crazy! i guess the QO must have been a two-way deal, so he had to sign for less if he wanted the one-way contract.

Hopefully he has a great season and can get a deserving raise next offseason.

I guess he isn't progressing as well as they had hoped.
