Vanek to the Wild is pretty much a non-starter, even at half salary. They don't have any useless cap space and Vanek costs wayyyy too much for Minny's blood right now, thanks to Heaters' labrum.
You can trade injured players, Buffalo did it last off-season with Derek Roy. You can't buy out injured players.
