100% of Backstrom's 7 PPP have been secondary assists. No goals. No primaries.
This season, Ribeiro has been miles ahead of Backstrom in this regard.
You're definitely right and Brouwer has been great for us this year, but how many of those slot set-ups has he missed from Backstrom this year? I mean miss too, he's had at least a few of those shots not even generate a rebound or a follow-up opportunity because he puts it wide.
