I might be alone on this, but I'd consider taking Backes off the powerplay for a bit. He seems to have struggled there at various times throughout the year, I've noticed that he tries to force plays that just aren't there. I feel like Backes thinks he needs to create something at all times since he's our default #1C, and the pressure is starting to mess with his on ice play. Play him on the PK and against the top competition at 5-on-5 and let our more skilled guys take his spot on the PP. Also, take Leopold off the PP. I'd rather have Jackman back there than him.
