07:27 AM ET 06.26 | When it comes to who stays and who goes during the offseason, it's often a numbers game: cap numbers. The week ahead should determine whether Matt Cullen remains in a Wild sweater. With goaltender Niklas Backstrom re-signed, the Wild would next like to find a way to keep Cullen, a potential free-agent-to-be on July 5. That will be challenging, however. The Wild has only an estimated $2.8 million worth of salary-cap space remaining. Potential restricted free agents Cal Clutterbuck, Jared Spurgeon and Justin Falk still are unsigned. And Cullen might be able to command more than $3 million on the open market. So, the math just doesn't add up. "Hopefully things will work out and it would be great to be back," Cullen said Tuesday. "But I do understand the cap situation."
