Uh. Backstrom might. He could get up to 3.5 and Minnesota would be fine.

And its more like Veilleux/Poms/Coyle taking over for Clutter/Butch/Cullen not much of a drop off there. In fact, Wild have an abundance of wingers. As it stands right now:

Parise Koivu Poms
Zucker Coyle Seto
Mitchell Brodziak Heatley
Veilleux Konopka Rupp

Suter Brodin
Scandella Spurgeron
Gilbert Stoner
Falk

Backstrom
Harding

Seems to be the lineup as of now and that'll get under the cap.
