The guy is a huge Oilers mark, who only got this writing gig because Yahoo had a bring your moron to work day.

You can argue that Gio, although was not drafted by the Flames, but spent his entire NHL career developing under the Flames was once just a complimentary player. He graduated from complimentary player to all star player over the years.

Backlund who was also in the complimentary player category was drafted and developed in our system. Like Gio, Backs is now a solid piece of this teams core
It was in.
