Niklas Backstrom's agent, Jay Grossman, will meet with Wild GM Chuck Fletcher and Shep Harder, who serves as Minnesota's director of hockey administration.
Grossman reportedly has permission to talk to other teams about a trade or free-agent contract, which suggests that Backstrom may consent to being bought out. However, he is still recovering from elbow surgery so the Wild have their hands tied at the moment. Jun 24 - 6:07 PM
