He's a well rounded player. I've been saying Backes-light for a while now. Sure he may never hit 90 points but I would take a potential 30 goal 60-70pt physical player every day of the week.
I don't think half of these people know or understand what Backes is/does.

But in the end our objective should be to get the best hockey player, not the best scorer, which is NYRfan444's point.
