Just an observation from Backstrom playing in KHL.

He has been trusted by the Russian Dale Hunter to come right in and play the PK, and he's winning 60%+ of his face offs. He's also continued with his ability to easily steal the puck like he started doing against the Bruins and Rangers.

The thing that is mostly showing though his quick stopping and starting and his lateral moves opening up his ability to shoot the puck. If he was more accurate, it would be like watching Ovechkin.

In other words his game is still changing, and he's gotten better, better then he was in 09-10.
