There's a good chance that the Minnesota Wild will look to buyout goaltender Niklas Backstrom this off-season.
The Wild are strapped for cash because they have handed several big contracts to some veterans like Thomas Vanek, Zach Parise and Ryan Suter but they will surely look to sign Devan Dubnyk to a contract extension. To do so, they will have to create as much cap space as possible. The veteran had a great career with the Wild, but he mostly served as the team's third goaltender after the acquisition of Dubnyk.
