Despite rumors that suggest David Backes would be switched to right wing to play alongside newly-signed Paul Stastny, the all-purpose forward will remain at center to start training camp.
In fact, Blues' coach Ken Hitchcock has indicated he would like to have the following pairs work together when camp opens in order to develop chemistry which would form the basis of the team's forward lines: Backes and T.J. Oshie, Stastny and Alexander Steen, Vladimir Tarasenko and Jori Lehtera and Jaden Schwartz and Dmitrij Jaskin. Interesting. Let's see if Hitch sticks with this plan. Sep 6 - 11:35 AM
