I don't think Backstrom has been bad in the playoffs (Semin on the other hand...), but I don't think he's been great enough to model a line based on his situation.
The forwards have not been good, no. Especially compared to their production in the regular season. My point with all that linemate stuff was that Backstrom played his best in the playoffs with Ovechkin and Kozlov. Why? Who knows, but that was his best playoff season.
