Like all goalies, he's only as good as the team in front of him. GAA and Save% are extremely overrated IMO. It's more dependent on the defensive system in place. What I'm more concerned with is a goalie's mental fortitude and consistency. Backs has had a couple hiccups (one spell where he was playing a bit too deep, another where he had glove hand trouble), but that's why he's an excellent goalie, not an elite HOF bound goalie (like Lundqvist or Brodeur).
