This does nothing to clear cap space


Ummmmm…..

They have some cap issues after next year, but they were going to have a hard time getting a roster together for 21-22 without making some kind of move. I’m sure other franchises were throwing anchors instead of lifejackets at the Wild as they tried to figure out a way to resign Kaprizov, Fiala, Cole and a center. They only had $15.9M before the buyouts to make that happen with only 16 players under contract. It feels like Kaprizov and Fiala might eat up that space by themselves.

I’m kind of wondering if the Wild protect Soucy instead of Dumba at this point because of the cap issues. It almost feels like a blue line of:

Brodin-Spurgeon

Cole and FA signing David Savard, Jamie Oleksiak or Derek Forbort

Soucy/Menell/Addison

If Dumba was the Kraken pick, then it frees up money to spend on Phillip Danault, Paul Stasny Derek Stepan or make a trade. Or they could trade Dumba to Philly for Nolan Patrick or Morgan Frost…
