Ive lost my patience with Backes. He's a complete idiot. You cant have your Captain costing you points in the late stages of a game you should win. He's irresponsible.
He constantly gives the other team a chance with idiotic penalties late. Not every game, but too damm many.
Backes's game is best when hes playing with an edge sometimes hes gonna cross the line or thought of as crossing the line but hes at his best by far when hes doing what he just did and finishing checks. I'll take backes doing that instead of the first like 20 games where you barely even noticed him playing.
