Oh, I completely agree.

I was just pointing that out as an error. There is no way 9 games should be enough to move Horak ahead of Backlund on the NHL depth chart. Backlunds value as a defensive forward trumps any (if there is any) offensive advantage that Horak would have on him. The fact the Backlund is producing offence at such a high clip is very encouraging.

A healthy season by Backlund will be a productive one.
