<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>Wadejos123</b></div><div>With 9 million dollars in cap space Minnesota likely doesn't have the money to sign both zucker and Dumba, and still have money to sign Eriksson Ek next year unless they trade contracts away</div></div>

Your premise is flawed. We have about $14.2 million in space. The roster listed on the Wild's page has 27 players (25 contracts) including multiple that won't touch the ice in MN unless there are major injuries. Here's the current lineup:

Zucker-Staal-Granlund
Parise-Koivu-Nino
???-Eriksson Ek-Coyle
Foligno-Fehr-Brown
Hendricks scratched

Suter-Spurgeon
Brodin-Dumba
Seeler-Pateryn
Olofsson and Prosser scratched

Dubnyk
Stalock

Greenway, Kunin, or Rau will likely fit in the open spot on the 3rd line. They'd account for $700k-$925k against the cap leaving $somewhere between $13.3 million and $13.5 million to re-sign Zucker and Dumba which should cost close to $11 million total. There's an extra $725k available if they waive/trade Olofsson since Bruce doesn't trust him and we don't need 2 extra D every night.

<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>Wadejos123</b></div><div>Trading Zucker for Jake Bean and a 3rd is a good deal for both teams. Carolina adds help up front, and finds their replacement for Jeff Skinner (likely to be moved). Jake Bean likely isn't a part of Carolina's new look defence for the future so Carolina likely can part ways with the young blueliner.</div></div>

I don't see how Bean benefits the Wild at all. We have more than enough LD as is. Suter, Brodin, and Seeler are locked down for the next 3+ years and we have more in the pipeline that are almost NHL ready. We have much more pressing needs than bolstering LD depth.
