I am a little late and you already have Dats but maybe someone else is looking for a different opinion. I had Dats and MOV Backstrom from the beginning (when they published these cards).
Based on the stats, Datsyuk is the best card in the game (all stats are 99). However, when you have 25 synergies activated like me, other TOTY/MOV players are on the same level, too (e.g. Marchand, Bergeron, Schultz, Burns) and Backstrom is getting very close to Datsyuk.
What does that mean in the game? Datsyuk was the best all around card in the game for a long time till TOTY, but with the activated synergies his previous advantage is almost gone. When you compare Datsyuk and Backstrom, Dats is the more physcial option with a better checking and aggressiveness while Backstrom is the more agile option. With a 96 face-off rating Backstrom is now an excellent center since TOTY. Dats is still marginal better with 99 on this stat but it is difficult to experience any difference on that.
So when you have many synergies activated you dont need to take care about the stats anymore cause they are almost similar. The decision shoud be related to your preferences and needs. Take Datsyuk when you need the best defence forward in the game (besides MOV Bergeron) with some more physicality. Take Backstrom when you need a quick and agile center. Both can score like **** on different ways.
I sold my 99 Datsyuk four weeks ago and go with MOV Backstrom, MOV Bergeron, TOTY Koivu and TOY Kesler since tat time. With all these synergies you dont need the 99 overall players to have a good team.

Thanks man ! Trying to sell dats, too many people quit when they see him. I don't have as many synergies as you but like you said the difference is marginal. Who would you pick between mov backstrom and mov Bergeron ? 1st line center between mov stone and toty tarasenko

I say wait for 98 Richards and use him. I would use a toews but his stats aren't 99 but at the end of the day comparing highly rated 90+ players is basically splitting hairs.
Play with who you want to play with that's the key to having fun in this game. It's your ultimate team not who are the best players use them just because.
