Sorry I just don't see it. Not yet anyway.
Lastwordonsports made that comparison and I still don't agree with it.
I'm also not fond of comparisons period, I prefer to look at their attributes and how they play the game, then project them in a role on the team of some sort.
Kind of why I didn't like the "McCarron = Lucic" logic, there is only one Lucic, just like there is only one Backes.
For me Backes has higher offensive upside, DLR has the nasty feisty side, he also plays with a lot of energy and is quite decent size though I personally wouldn't mind if he put on some muscle to make him that much better.
He's definitely got hands, but to say he's the next Backes is a stretch at best. Like many others I'm concerned about his offensive upside, I really hope he gets a bigger role with Leksand this season.
