Are you liking Suter and Parise 2-3 years from now?

There is more cap room if you'd send the AHL guys back to the AHL: O'Reilly, Anas, Rau. ~$5m to upgrade 2 bottom-6 positions, and cover the cost of Dumba/Zucker if you went low on the contracts. Add another $2m to that with Ennis buyout, or $1m if he's sent to the AHL.

Not getting a top guy, but there are still quality players to be had in the $2-$3m range.

A compliance buyout or two with the next CBA would help the Wild immensely.

I just don't see getting a push over the top this year. Not enough cap room to add the scoring needed or a true #1 center that is younger. They have tried the last couple of years to add the right pieces but it has strpped them with the cap and stolen prospects/picks.. Losing Tuch and Haula also hurt.

Let Ennis' contract expire. Deal Staal at the deadline (his performance will probably demand a higher contract with his resurgence so I don't see him being resigned on a just make the playoffs team). Deal Nino to a contender at the deadline who is going to make a cup run and is willing to take the risk (if he puts up a 50 pt season pace). See what you have in these 25 year old AHLers and make some big moves next off season. They may be able to trade a top 4 D for a #1 younger center in a deal by then. And you still have room for a buyout option then if needed. Maybe deal Dubnyk at the deadline if the Wild doesn't look to be a cup contender for a year or two.

I see Suter's contract being okay by the end of his career barring injury. Parise I see as needing to retire for health reasons before it plays out, but it was a mistake contract and I really like him as a player.
