While Backstrom may be re-signed for something like 4 million/year, that's still 13 million for Perry plus 3 kids.

And when those kids need to be re-signed, Setoguchi, Brodziak, and Mitchell will be re-established (and therefore NOT being replaced by a kid) or they will be pushed out as well.
And if he chooses not to sign with the Wild?

If this was a team looking for the right piece to make a cup run this year i would be ok with it, however they are not making a cup run.

If you want him i say wait until free agency.
