Yep, it's pretty awesome. Caveats abound in terms of the context of those points (e.g. Read is outpacing both Berglund and Kopitar as well, despite being a clearly inferior player), but he's showing the offensive spark that a lot of people were concerned about. And it's a treat to see as a Backlund fanboy.
