When the Minnesota Wild hired Bill Guerin to be the team’s fourth general manager in team history there was one question that everybody wanted to know the answer to. What direction was he going to take? Was he going to tear down the roster and go into a full on rebuild? Or was he going to forge on with the current core and make minor tweaks?
The Jared Spurgeon contract situation was going to give the fanbase a good look into what Guerin was thinking. If he gets a deal done for Spurgeon it meant that he could be opting to forge forward with the current core.
