David Backes feels like the Bruins are a perfect fit for him.
Backes left the Blues and joined the Bruins as a free agent on July 1st. He feels like Boston plays a style that he can appreciate. "From my time playing against Boston and my history with the team, it’s a blue-collar, hard-nosed, don’t-take-crap-from-anybody type of team and that’s kind of the way that I feel I’ve built my game in 10 years in the league," said Backes. "And I think it will be a seamless fit that will fill a few holes or deficiencies that, through the interview process, were identified and are strengths of mine, in all facets of the game — 5-on-5, power play, penalty kill. It just seemed like an awesome fit, hockey-wise and the more I learn about the New England area and the family life there, that seems like a match made in heaven as well." Jul 3 - 10:39 AM
