The Wild have 49 of a maximum 50 possible contracts on the books and are less than $2 million under the current salary cap ceiling, but they won't be making any trades just yet.
Teams generally operate under the 50-contract limit in order to have flexibility to freely make other roster moves. Wild general manager Chuck Fletcher acknowledges this but says he will wait until training camp plays out before he makes any trades. "Let's just see where we're at before we start making moves," Fletcher said. "We're deeper on defense, and up front, our depth is exceptional. We're as deep as any team in the league up front. And we have really good depth in goal. So I think the important thing is let's see where we're at and let's see where we are health-wise, let's see who plays well and who doesn't and let the players sort everything out for us - whether its from a health perspective or a performance perspective and make adjustments as we need to instead of guessing."
