Solid defensively, very good offensive player. Physical and a damn good Captain.

Highly doubt the Blues move him anytime soon, but if we are looking for guys that can change the momentum of a game with acts and not words, then he would be a good guy to have.

The NHL doesn't have that player that possesses the total package of skill, physicality and defensive awareness. Have to be willing to get short-changed in one aspect.

To me, David Backes would be great captain to have and I think he's going to get the C for Team USA at the olympics this year.
Backes and TJ Oshie are 2 players id love if they were on the Rangers...im starting to think that this is the year Callahan is on the quick decline. if he still playing at the age of 32-35 ill be shocked.
