yes a first line center can shut down the other team but look at Bergeron or toews...those are 1st line centers...
Whether hes a first line center or not is not what's being questioned here, it's whether hes overpaid. Backes has a ridiculous contract compared to the majority of these players in the league (ridiculous in a good way). If he was a FA this year, I could see him getting a million + more than what he is currently making. As I previously said, Bozak is currently making more than Backes.
