Four of the biggest names in fantasy hockey predict that Caps center Nicklas Backstrom will have a big bounce-back year in 2010-11 that will include a return to the 25-goal plateau. A couple of respected local prognosticators have him falling a bit shy of that mark. So our question today: Will Nicklas Backstrom (who scored 18 goals last season and 33 the year before) score more or fewer than 25 goals during the 2010-11 regular season?
By way of background, the above-referenced predictions:
- Neil Greenberg: 18 goals
- CBSSportsline: 22 goals
- Peerless: 23 goals
- RockTheRed.net: 25 goals
- DobberHockey: 26 goals
- Forecaster: 27 goals
- McKeen’s: 28 goals
- Rotowire: 29 goals
