The Minnesota Wild will need to shed some salary next season as the Wild have a big salary cap hit against them with the buyouts of Ryan Suter and Zach Parise. With the Wild in a cap crunch they may be forced to trade Kevin Fiala if they can’t re-sign him to a team friendly cap hit this offseason.
Mendes went on to say, the Senators are going to have to send some valuable assets to the Wild for a trade to happen. Fiala, 25, is a huge part of the Wild’s success, with 23 goals and 61 points this season.
Fiala will also require a new contract as he is a pending RFA. Fiala would be a great acquisition for the Sens, but are the Sens willing to give up assets, plus commit to a long-term contract for a Fiala trade?
