Other teams players MUST know where he is on the ice whether he has the puck or not for they could get blasted into little bits or be viciously embarrassed.
There is a reason why, despite whoever he plays with, AO draws the other teams top dmen.
In this series the Rags took what Boston did to another level. Not only did they start matching a dpairing against #8 but they are matching a forward line on him too.
He puts a great deal of FEAR into the opposition that maybe only 2 or 3 other players in the NHL do.
Backstrom is an all world outstanding player. But lets not go overboard...
Some don't realize (or choose to ignore) how much attention Ovy draws, how much ice he opens up, the defensive coverage he attracts drawing it away from his teammates.
Ovechkin is the best player on the team. Now that's not to say Backstrom hasn't played better from time to time.
