He really becomes easy to shut down when he gets mad. He draws stupid penalties and loses concentration on the play. Put a decent enforcer on him and they completely made Backes nullified. He has hard time rebounding back and behaving.
Don't get me wrong, I like Backes and find him a great player. But as the team leader, I don't know. His emotions, as you pointed out, run unchecked and out of control sometimes.
