Nicklas Backstrom has become the leader of the Washington Capitals.
While most would figure it would be Alex Ovechkin, Ovie is not the one in the dressing room to say a lot and Backstrom has become quite vocal when needed. "He's a fairly quiet guy," T.J. Oshie said. "He's reserved, he's extremely poised with his emotions and with his hockey game, how he carries himself on the ice. When things need to be said and Nick speaks and he stands up and he says something, you listen because he cares, he thinks about what he says and he says the right things and a lot of the right moments." Backstrom is the Capitals top point-getter as he finished with 86 points in the regular season and 13 points in 13 playoffs games. He should be taken in the top-two rounds of most pools next season.
