As for Backstrom wearing down the last few years, that's absolutely correct. But look at his usage up to that (breaking) point. The Wild have ridden him pretty hard during his tenure so I would assume the hope would be to be able to balance the load moving forward.
How Yeo handled the goaltending situation in this abbreviated year was about as poor as you could draw up.
