Last season when the Flames were shaky right before the onset of the playoffs, Sutter recalled Mikael Backlund to the team from the Abbotsford Heat farm team. His recall seemed to be like a last-ditch effort to inject some new life into the team, but while Backlund did okay in the games he played, it was nothing spectacular.

Coming into the 2010-2011 season Backlund is being hyped up even more as a saving grace for the Flames. Do you think that Flames fans are justified in putting a lot of pressure on the 21-year old center to help bring the Flames back up to where they were several years ago?

No the real pressure is on Iggy if Backland gets a spot on the team he will be more likely to be on the 3rd or 4th line.

If his play was good enough to play the last 23 games.
