"Backlund's gonna be gone" doomsdayers in shambles.
What a great day.
I got the 1st post! I wasn't sure how to post the tweet. Cool that it does it by itself now.
Glad to see Backlun re-signed.
I literally fist pumped when I saw this.
Backs means more to this team than can be put into dollars or numbers. Really glad we got him locked up long term.
Give this guy an 'A' already.
Great contract. One year longer than the ideal contract but great signing.
Great deal. Thought the lowest we could get was going to be 5.5, guess that's what the 6th year is for.
Treliving nailing it again.
Can I swear? I'm gonna swear.
That's a f****** steal!!
I could cry I'm so happy
I dunno. He'll be 35 at the conclusion of the contract, and with the type of player he is and how his developmental trajectory has been, I doubt that 35-year-old Mikael Backlund will be significantly worse than what he is right now.
He's actually wearing one right now with Brouwer out.
So happy. It's quite awesome to see a player that the Flames drafted grow into such an important part of the team. Love it.
That main board banter
Hopefully he keeps it over Troy “Must be good in the locker room, because he’s useless on the ice most of the time” Brouwer
Looks like the team gave up the extra year to bring the cap hit down. Great contract all in all though.
Well, Mikael, let me be the first to say it's "My fiancée Frida and I..."*
I was really hopeful when I heard 4.5 but this is still a great contract
Backlund haters in SHAMBLES.
What a signing, what a player. Weird that Backlund lives with his sister though.
CapFriendly - NHL Salary Caps
I am jubilant right now.
Very nice signing-love it
Shambles haters in SHAMBLES.
Good signing tho
