Mikael backlund to the Leafs

What is he worth too the flames. How has he done in the NHL so far.

I was thinking about an offer of

Gunnerson + Bozak

For

Mikael backlund

NHL Center with 2nd line potential plus two way Defensemen that's also young still with top 4 potential. Bozak and Backlund will replace eachother on their respective teams. Gunnerson will make Calgary deeper on defense without question. Alot of people will think this is an overpayment moving Gunnerson but im comfortable with a move like this.

Since there is so much negative feedback I want Flames fans to edit the trade too what they think is a equal return from the Leafs. I think it will be far worse then the offer i made.

You think Calgary is gonna give up one of their very few young good players with potential, for craptacular Bozak and a bottom pairing D?

You sir, just wasted everybody's time.

Could be tweaked slightly to be a very good deal for both teams IMO. Bozak is basically just a throw in, but Gunnarson would be a good player for Calgary to get

Backlund has so much more value to the Flames than that proposed deal.

Backlund just graduated off the Flames prospects charts this summer.
Before that, he was their #1 prospect.

And some Leafs fan offers Bozak and Gunner... come on. This is just wasted bandwidth..

Not even close.

The only way Backlund gets moved is in a package deal that sends a big name back. As of now, the last thing the Flames need is defensive depth.

So what he was the #1 prospect in Calgary's terrible prospect pool.

In 97 games he has a total of 11 goals and 24 assists for 35 points. Although the value is close, I don't think Calgary Flames fans will like it(being that is doesn't think of their needs whatsoever). But as a Leaf fan I accept!
To anyone who says value is in leafs favor;
Carl Gunnarsson has played only 14 more games than Backlund, and yet still has the same amount of points as him(35), and he's a defenseman. I know stats don't mean everything, (and I'm not hating on Backlund in anway), but whoever says the value is way off, Is either a flames fan, or a leaf hater.

Bozak has #1 C potential. Calgary would be silly to pass this deal up. Would be a steal.

He hS #1 potential. Sure he had an off season last year but the year before he put up like 27 pts in 37 games. If he can get back to that form this trade becomes a no brainer.

This is just a horrid proposal. Try starting with one of your top prospects and add more.

No way Flames do this. They can get a better return than this for Backlund.

and what is up with all these Flames players/prospects to Leafs proposals?

He'd be among the top of your list. Aka better than all but one or two of yours.

Sutter is gone so don't see this one happening.
