It seems that everyone in the Washington Capitals organization is impressed with center Nicklas Backstrom.
Backstrom is seen in the dressing room as the player who sets the tone for the team and makes it run. Coach Barry Trotz has been so impressed with his play and wonders how he doesn't have more awards in his NHL career. "I’ll tell you," Trotz said, "both ends of the ice, he’s as good as anybody I’ve seen." Look for Backstrom to get a ton of points on the power play again this season as he led the NHL last year with 44 and flirt with a point-per-game, if not a touch more. Oct 11 - 10:14 AM
