the complete review is SOP. they do a complete review more than once a year. every year. we have no idea if there is a tangible reason why backstrom was so bad this season. if there was a tangible reason, we dont know what it is. was it an injury? was it mental/confidence? was it nutritional/fitness oriented? was it party hardy oriented? was his mother ill with something life threatening? unless you know that answer to that question, you cant come close to making an educated analysis as to what the organEYEzation needs to do about the problem or the player.

if the rock reliable backstrom is fully expected to return next season because they known reason for his off season will have passed, you treat the situation one way. if the problem can not be addressed and my continue to linger, then other things need to be considered.

i know this much. backstrom was not himself and it was obvious. arnott appeared to be hurt to a level that it effected his ice time and his availability. that left a lot riding on the rookie.
