Kopitar, Seguin and Kane I agree with though (could change in the future).
Tavares, Giroux, and Toews are all under a PPG in their career while Backstrom is just above a PPG. Closest one is Giroux at .9

Backstrom also had the most points his rookie year (69) compared to Toews (54), Giroux (27), and Tavares (54)

Edit: And don't say blah blah blah he had Ovechkin to play with. Ovechkin benefits from Backstrom and the numbers have proven that when Nicky has been out of the lineup and Ovie has played with guys like Laich and Marcus Johansson
