News: Backes finished the preseason with three goals and no assists in three games played. Impact: The winger finished last season with 57 points and though he's preparing for his age-30 season, his outlook appears similarly rosy. Backes will slot back in as a top-six forwards, and while the addition of Paul Stastny may cut into his ice time, the captain has more than enough talent around him to maintain his lofty production.(RotoWire, )
