I think most would disagree that Horak was better defensively, I would agree with tmufin that Backlund had high expectations and failed on them which made people sour on him where as Horak had no expectation and showed he could play in the nhl so people were quiet happy with him.
There is nothing I have seen that has made me believe that Horak is better than Backlund in anyway.
