Just pointing it out. I do agree he hasn't seemed as dangerous or involved offensively from a qualitative standpoint but the numbers aren't bad at all.
They really aren't. I think part of why some people are down on Backes is because other guys are stepping up.
Chris Stewart looks great and Patrick Berglund is starting to turn into the player we've always hoped he would be.
That said, Backes is scoring at basically the same rate as the two guys I listed (Stewart has one more point, Berglund one less) and Backes plays much better defense.
