David Backes is still on the board as of round 10. He's not pleased about it.
He realizes that perhaps fighting everyone at the All-Star Game probably didn't win him any friends for an event like this, but he's not backing down. He said whoever doesn't pick him can look forward to getting drilled on Sunday.
Of course, he might have to hit Nick Lidstrom, something Backes said he hasn't done in 5 years.
I don't know how he does it. I don't know how he gets his body parallel with the player and pulls it through his legs like that. I know he's tried it a couple times in practice and it's never worked, so how he does it in a game, it's incredible.
