    If I heard right, the Vancouver arena people said it for the crowd. I don’t think I’ve noticed rivals arenas doing that for other stars before, actually.

    One of the most underrated playmakers. Yeah sure he had the GOAT goalscorer on his wing for like what, 6 years, but still... he's not a product of Ovie, like many bitter Leafers claim. I'm happy for Backs.

    Such a terrific playmaker and underrated twoway player. His shot is so good too, I wish he used it more

    Unfortunately always overshadowed by Ovi, but Backstrom is a great player

    Its simply unfair how underrated he is in the league. I wonder whether he personally cares about it though, that many see him as "some passer" while he is WAY more than that.

    Im very happy that OV decided to give the cup to him first. That was nice and very deserved.

    Most points in his draft class. Most assists in his draft class. By a fair bit.

    His draft: 2006

    Other 2006 draftees:

    Claude Giroux
    Jonathan Toews
    Phil Kessel

    And he didn't play in the NHL until the 2007/8 season. Since he arrived, he has more assists than anyone in the league. More than H. Sedin (by 1), more than Thornton (by a bit), more than Crosby (by a lot).

    And that doesn't even take into account his elite (and ignored, largely) excellent defensive play.

    It’s okay. His number will be hanging right next to 8’s up in the rafters.

    One of the NHL’s best playmakers over the course of his career. Congrats to him.

    Makes me wonder why St. Louis took Erik Johnson first overall.
