David Backes understands that he could shuffle between linemates and positions in 2016-17.
It's believed that he may start on the wing with Patrice Bergeron and Brad Marchand, but he also could play center at times against larger lineups. "It's not going to be something that's set in stone," said Backes. "I think it will be an adjustment. Whatever [coach] Claude [Julien] thinks is necessary . . . when you're playing with good players, I think the old NHL maybe you were stuck in your lane and you just went up and down the wall, but [these days] it's pretty dynamic and fluid."
