That's where Cullen and Butch come in. Big money off the books, which may allow us to keep Backstrom.

If Clutterbuck wants too much money, flip him for a pick. Simple as that.

I can't see the Wild trading either Backstrom or Hackett. Harding's diagnosis and injury concerns are too risky to guarantee him as our #1 goalie, and Hackett's too unexperienced. If the Wild want to compete anytime soon, they'll likely hold onto Backstrom.
Summed it up perfectly.
