Thats what i thought. Backstrom is certainly elite, heck of a player, but 17pts in 16 games doesnt prove to me that he'd be a 90pt player in a defensive system. Backstrom has skated with Ovechkin riding shotgun, in a WIDE open Bruce Boudreau offensive system. I think it can be debated he'd maybe see a slight decline in his point totals if he were under a coach like Julien (-10pts ?)
