David Backes recorded 38 points in 2016-17, which is his lowest point total in a full season since 2007-08.
Backes hopes to get more responsibility next season and possibly return to playing center. "Do I think all the other options were explored? I don't," he said. "(Bruce Cassidy's) time was short, and what worked he went with, and what didn’t work he tried to change. ... Me at center with different guys or different combinations? I think there's always room for tinkering with it, just so we can have depth and roll three good lines or four good lines. That'll be up to next year, especially when you have a preseason you can try out some of those things. Maybe that'll be an opportunity to explore other options that we have." He spent most of his time under Cassidy on the wing with Patrice Bergeron and Brad Marchand. Apr 30 - 5:49 PM
