grandmaster Posted February 11, 2020 Share Posted February 11, 2020 https://www.thescore.com/nhl/news/1944880 Minnesota Wild general manager Bill Guerin means business in his first season with the team. Guerin warned his club Tuesday that more trades may be on the horizon, just one day after dealing veteran Jason Zucker to the Pittsburgh Penguins. "I can promise you this: if there is quit, there will be more trades," Guerin told reporters. "I wholeheartedly expect this team to compete for a playoff spot, we're right there. If there's any signs of anybody taking their foot off the gas, that will be an indication." The Wild received Alex Galchenyuk, as well as a top prospect and first-round draft pick for Zucker. Guerin knows he needs to match the effort he's asking for from his players if the team is to make a postseason run. "We're going to do our best, we know where we stand right now and what we need to address and we'll keep working towards it," Guerin added. "Like I've said in the past, I'm not going to make trades just to try to make trades and fabricate something that's not good enough. If a deal makes sense we'll do it. If it doesn't, then we'll be patient and we'll wait." The Wild sit in sixth place in the Central Division with a 26-23-6 record, but are just five points out of the second wild-card spot.
