Wild's Devan Dubnyk Demands Over $5 million per Season

The Minnesota Wild have made no progress in their negotiations with UFA goaltender, Devan Dubnyk. According to Mike Russo of the Star Tribune:

Dubnyk is looking for north of $5 million on a long-term deal. That could be significantly more than the Wild’s willing to stomach after seeing Dubnyk play for 3 ½ months, particularly with the cap issues the team faces this offseason with Dubnyk, Mikael Granlund, Erik Haula and Christian Folin still unsigned.

Dubnyk found success with the Wild last season with a .936 SV% and a 1.78 GAA in 39 games played. The 29 year old is nominated for the Vezina trophy and is looking to cash in with a $5+ million per season multi-year deal. The Wild are in a tough predicament because they do not have a reliable goaltender and do not have the cap space to meet the demands of Dubnyk.

The Calgary Flames, Edmonton Oilers and San Jose Sharks are in the market for a goaltender and have the cap space available to sign Devan Dubnyk.
