Minnesota Wild Rumors: Team Actively Shopping Winger, Getting No Interest In Defenceman

The Minnesota Wild are looking to make fairly significant changes to their roster at the trade deadline and offseason. Two players that they are looking to move on from are Jordan Greenway and Matt Dumba.

According to Michael Russo, the Wild are actively shopping Greenway and hope to either trade him at the deadline or in the summer. They are looking to upgrade their forward group this season with limited cap space, so ideally a trade would come this season. He has not been very productive offensively at all this season and has really taken a step back. He is playing in a third line role and has scored just two goals and six points in 35 games. His cap hit of $3 million AAV is not the best for finding a potential trade partner.

In terms of moving Dumba, there has been talk that the Wild have wanted to move him by the trade deadline. The defensive unit is full and they can do with moving the pending UFAs cap hit so they can add up front. Dumba makes $6 million, but Russo also said that the sense is that Minnesota is getting no interest in their defenceman.

Ideally, the Wild would be able to move both off of their roster by the trade deadline and it wouldn't cost any assets, but that may not happen. They should not give anything up to clear Dumba's cap unless it's a late round pick since he will be off the books in the summer anyways.
