I'd love to hear that argument.
Backstrom is an arguable top 10 center and is ridiculously underrated.
Backstrom is a great player, and certainly better than Seguin right now, but:
Seguin is 4 years younger
Coming off a breakout season where he had more points than Backstrom has had in two years (I know, injuries, just sayin)
and is tearing apart the Swiss league right now, outperforming other high profile NHL'ers like Nash, Thornton, Couture, Tavares, Spezza.
I think Seguin has the potential to be better than Backstrom. Let's see how he performs when the NHL returns, but his value would certainly be close right now.
