Projected protection list
Seven forwards: Joel Eriksson Ek, Kevin Fiala, Marcus Foligno, Jordan Greenway, Ryan Hartman, Nico Sturm and Mats Zuccarello.
Three defensemen: Jonas Brodin, Matt Dumba and Jared Spurgeon.
One goalie: Cam Talbot.
Possible Seattle targets
Carson Soucy, defense
Losing Soucy would create another hole on a Wild blue line already in need of attention.
Kaapo Kahkonen, goaltender
The Wild could use free agency to bring in a new backup if Kahkonen leaves.
