It's easy to look at stats and say he's not as good as Ovechkin, but Backstrom is the best player on the team. And he has been for 3 or 4 years.
I'm going to say last year for sure Backstrom was better, but not for 3 years and definatley not four. Two years ago was Backstrom's slump year and some nights he looked invisible or really off. Ovy didn't look terrific either that year.I'm also a Caps fan and watched all but a few games.
