Continued: Settling goalie situation is Wild's top priority

Since Mikael Granlund still doesn’t appear ready to take on these roles, it would be hard for the Wild to externally replace all that Cullen brings, especially with limited funds.

Cullen, who had no exit meeting with Fletcher or coach Mike Yeo, is eager to hear from the bosses.

“I’ll just be very open-minded about what’s going to happen,” Cullen said.

Fletcher expects bounce-back years from players who struggled and youngsters to take the next step in their careers. He doesn’t foresee problems “making changes.”

“I look at where we were 12 months ago, we were a team that lacked NHL-caliber talent, a team coming off a really poor season and a team that needed to improve in so many different ways,” Fletcher said. “We’ve come a long way. Now our challenge is how do we continue to improve in a situation where the salary cap is coming down.

“Every year presents different challenges, but I much prefer the challenges we have this summer compared to last summer.”
