David Backes hopes to sign a new deal with St. Louis.
"No question this is home. We've been here 10 years and this is what we consider home. I don't know anything else," said Backes. "Hopefully it all works out, but it is the unfortunate side of sports that guys staying with one team is rare but maybe I'm one of those rare guys. That would be great." He can become an unrestricted free agent in July, but he has said all along that he wants to stay with the only team that he has played for during his NHL career. May 28 - 3:40 PM
