Backstrom seemed to return to his All-Star form for most of the 2010-11 season - at least until a depleted and porous defense left him completely alone during the Wild's late-season collapse. He is still definitely an elite NHL goaltender. I'm pretty excited about this return, as it includes my first success from the Upper Deck 20th Anniversary insert set, replicating the original 1990-91 Upper Deck design.
