Just because Ovechkin+Backstrom is doing better than Ovechkin-Backstrom. Doesn't mean Backstrom is suddenly more important than Ovechkin. He's a great player, but this isn't a Malkin/Crosby style debate...
This nails it on the head. Not choosing the obvious.

Also agree with TX. Backstrom works against the b team. When 8 and 19 get split up the opposing team always leaves their top guys against 8 and there is a reason for that.

RE: Green

RH is onto something. Green has looked like he has been loosened of the reigns. DH has activated him.
