And there in lies the problem with dealing for a goaltender like Backstrom with a $6m tag. Doubtful the Wild would be at all interested in Komisarek and have a hard time seeing where Lombardi and Connolly would fit next season given how MN will go into the year at forward. The Wild absolutely would be fine going into next season with Backstrom under contract for one last year given his production. So I don't think they'd be all that interested in taking on players and contracts that don't really fit into what they want to do moving forward.
As for those wondering, Backs did (and possibly still does) have some sort of trade clause built in. But there's not a lot of concrete documentation out there regarding what it states.
