Minnesota Wild GM Bill Guerin, frustrated with the team's disappointing performance since the season started, conducted a closed-door meeting with players and staff before their departure for the NHL's Global Series in Sweden, as reported by The Athletic.
"Was it a scream-fest? Bit of both. The one thing about Billy, when he talks, everyone respects the s out of him. That guy talks, you're gonna really, really listen." - Marcus Foligno

"It was kind of a kick in the ass, figure our s out kind of meeting. Something we definitely needed." - Ryan Hartman.

"I'm not happy. I'm not happy with where we are."

"My biggest thing is our compete level. And look, guys work hard every night and they care. I know that. But it's a different type of compete and focus. I just don't think we've had it."

"It's everything from faceoffs and 50-50 puck battles to just pure execution, being in position, being in the right places to tape-to-tape passes. It all needs to be better."

Guerin's Speech: No Effect as the Wild Lose Back-to-Back Games in Sweden

Despite Guerin's efforts, the Wild lost their two games in Sweden. While there's no immediate concern over coach Bill Evason's job security, the team's struggles may lead to significant changes.
