Christian Backman?

I'm just asking out of curiosity, what ever happened to him? Was he really that bad a D-man?

To answer your questions: 1) He's played in the Swedish Elite league the last couple of years after not being wanted by any NHL teams; and 2) Yes.

Was he that bad? I don't think there is a word in the English dictionary that could describe how bad he is/was, so he was more than "that bad".

Notice a player with not ideal positional play, slow with bad moving. He had to be our PPQB but his passes were not any idea, any suprise. He did not use his body, he was soft boy I had feel sometimes that he avoids forwards. I do not know how he had potential but if he had it he never fill it.

When his A game consisted of him sitting on the bench so it wouldn't fly up into the crowd, yeah, he was bad.

When former Blues GM Larry Pleau gave Backman a multi year extension I was sure that someone, somewhere was controlling his mind in a bold gambit to sabotage the Blues. As it turns out, Pleau did an excellent job of that all on his own with multi year deals to Brewer, McKee and Jackman in the following years. I later came to the conclusion that Pleau was, in fact, not a very good GM.

I know it was a joke, hence the sarcasm, i was just wondering about the way you wrote the sentence, because it was the way you would write it in German.

Not as weird. In a 82 game season on an NHL roster there will be more depth/energy players than on a Olympic Roster for a top nation.
