The Minnesota Wild have signed Mikael Granlund to a reasonable deal, which leaves Marcus Foligno as the Wild’s last remaining RFA.

Cap Friendly estimates the Wild have about $4.79 million left in cap space. Is that enough space for all of Foligno, Matt Cullen, and Jaromir Jagr? Only time will tell.
