Doesn't this sound like a certain someone who retired last June?
Yeah, I've been a Backman fan since he was drafted due to the way he plays the game. The good news is his offense is coming along nicely. If he can be the leading scorer among d-men in the SEL next season he'll be just about everything you could want: great skater, very good size, excellent defensive game, with a burgeoning offensive skill set. I'm glad he's being compared to Edler because being compared to Lids would be too much too soon. However I do hope we have Nick working with him and telling him everything he knows about playing defense. Sort of like an upgrade to a kick ass operating system no one else is equipped with.
