To Minnesota: Steve Mason

To Columbus: Niklas Backstrom

This reduces Minnesota's payroll to $65,748,867. That may not still be enough.

However, Columbus gets a proven back up for Bobrovsky, and Minnesota allows Harding to become the starter. Mason gets a change of scenery, and he's a threat to push Harding for the starting job.
In what world does Backstrom play 2nd fiddle to Bobrovsky?
