I guess they'll play him on the wing? Not bumping Bergeron or Krejci from their top-2 C spots.

That's 5 years, $6mil AAV. A pretty common cap hit today.

5 years seems too long for Backes. Not sure he'll last that long.

I'm so happy when I see Boston continue to make boneheaded decisions and handcuffing themselves for years to come.
