No salary retained either way.

Pominville has 2 years left on his deal at $5.6mil, Scandella has 3 years left at $4mil.

Ennis has 2 years left at $4.6mil, while Foligno is a RFA who made $2.25mil last season.

Pominville is still playing?  My last memory of him was screwing the sens about a thousand years ago (it seems).

This seems like a dumb trade by Buffalo

How so? I don't think they gave up anything worth much, other than cap space. They got someone who is immediately their best defenseman.

They take on a little extra cap, but Ennis has seen his effectiveness destroyed by injuries, Foligno never progressed past being a 3rd liner. Pominville is getting older, but he's still a ~40 point winger, while Scandella is a quality defenceman. I like the trade for Buffalo a lot more than I do for Minny, to be honest. For it to be a good deal for the Wild, Ennis really needs to rebound.

Buffalo gets the 2 best players in a 4-player trade, and assuming Minny re-signs Folingo for around his previous years cap hit they only save about $2.5mil total. They could have probably just traded Scandella for a 2nd and they would have came out looking better.

Didn't realize Ennis took such a huge dive - wow!
