Why not just pluck one of the other million available goaltenders or re-sign Backstrom at a lower rate and keep Dumba? Minnesota can buy out Gilbert, too, now that he fulfilled his role of helping to recruit Parise to the Wild.
Unless that + you're referring to is Grigorenko/Armia, that trade isn't going to happen.
Minnesota is going to trade its best non-roster defensive prospect in order to ice a complete lineup and stay under the salary cap next year and compete for the Stanley Cup.
(You know, it probably wouldn't be Dumba but the concept is still there: Sabres need prospects/picks and can take on salary and "suffer" next season; Wild need a starting goalie, salary cap relief and to compete for the Cup next season)
