And they have 2 amnesties in hand.

to think that minny has even a hint of cap issues is a complete and utter joke.
i'm sorry but ur wrong...

Clutterbuck will get 3-3.5 per (Upshall money)
Falk will get 1.5-2 per (McBain money)
Hackett will get 1.5-1.8 per (Reimer money)
Bouchard will get 4-4.5 per (Ruutu money)

So even if you add up all the lower AAV's thats $10M!!!

There is NO WAY they can amnesty buyout Heatley after they spent so much on Parise/Suter... Ownership would never allow that.

Backstrom is the odd man out! They have Hackett and Kuemper moving forward!!! They are both young stud goalies and have showed this at every level so far.
