Backes is doing a great job shutting down other teams' top lines and I am not saying that sarcastically. It's just that he is playing more like a 3rd line center than a 1st line center and captain.
I'm not taking anything away from Sobotka, and I love him, but he had a great few games offensively. He hasn't been very productive outside of that short stretch.
