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