Even the example you used, Backes, was far from being what he is now at 22.

Also future captain

#habs Lars Eller is always available to speak to the media can't someone else come out and give that poor guy a break
Got to love Eller's attitude. The kid is fearless.

That's why I have high hopes for him. What he's good at already are things that we needed from our forward prospects (not just size but playing to his size, sound defensive play, excellent puck possession), while his weaknesses, mainly decision making in front of the net tends to get better with age. He might not have that playmaking vision you can see from day 1 in elite prospects like Tavares and Crosby, but he's already improved his offensive play significantly.
