Very good. I hope he and Stempniak work in the off-season with that trainer that MacInnis is always pimping. Increasing their lower body strength would help them both immensely, especially Backes, who despite his size gets knocked on his behind a fair amount.
Over the next 4-5 years, as Oshie, Soderberg, Berglund, Aaltonen and whoever the Blues draft with the first pick this year start flourishing, this team will be able to annually renew its forward talent base from within. Offensive talent is something this team could previously only bring through FA signings, nice to finally have some of it come cheaply.
