He's probably still a top 30 center, but people still think of him as a top 10 center. I don't see it.
Backstrom is good, but only ~70-75 point good. He is a good setup man, but frankly isn't a very good goal scorer. I'd be surprised if he ever score more than 25 goals again. Also, no surprise that his two great seasons coincide with two of Ovi's best seasons.
