he is a 21 year old center with nearly 50 nhl points and was not a top 5 pick. it might be that he disappointed your expectations because they were a bit too high.
This has nothing to do with Backstrom or passing ability, it's about MAJO's poor decision-making. Backstrom and MAJO are more different than they are similar as hockey players, so there's really no need to compare the two.
Decision-making is something that can improve over time, so here's hoping MAJO continues to improve.
