Every team over pays for UFA's, but in this case, the Wild did NOT offer the highest contracts. Both players left $10+mil on the table from other teams to sign with Minnesota.

Plus, if the Wild get what they hope to out of their extremely talented pool of prospects... we have a cheap influx coming of home developed players that will cost much less, and they would only need to supplement a player here and there to fill in any gaps still left.

The Wild are sitting PERFECTLY in terms of future cap and future talent.
