On the Washington Capitals …
Isabelle Khurshudyan: The Capitals and GM MacLellan loved Williams but the Capitals have five restricted free agents they need to re-sign and don’t have a lot of salary cap space.
On the Minnesota Wild …
The Wild do only have around $12.5 million in cap space with 16 players signed.
They could also be looking for a left winger and may have interest in Chris Kunitz, Matt Hendricks and Scottie Upshall. Some fourth-line center options could be Brian Boyle, Nate Thompson and Dominic Moore.
Matt Cullen would likely return to Pittsburgh if he decides to play next year, but maybe he’d consider playing in his hometown again.
The Wild are only interested in re-signing Christian Folin if it’s a two-way contract.
