The Wild might be in the market for a new backstop with the potential UFA status of their veteran goalie.  Backstrom has been good for the Wild, but unable to take the team deep in a playoff run.  The fact that he has never really posted stellar stats and is now 35 combined with the fact that there are a number of goalies available could lead to a backup role and a reduced salary.
