The Minnesota Wild are currently in sixth place in the Central Division standings, just four points behind the Nashville Predators for the final wild card spot in the Western Conference.

General Manager Bill Guerin faces a crucial decision this week as he assesses the team's position ahead of the trade deadline next Friday. Minnesota has several players who could attract interest if they decide to sell, with goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury being the most prominent among them.

Despite potential interest from other teams, Fleury expressed his desire to stay with the Wild and help them secure a spot in the Stanley Cup Playoffs.


"If we were last in the conference, maybe it'd be a little bit different," Fleury said. "But this is my team. We've been battling together, right? I take pride in winning with this team. I want us to make the playoffs. That's my first priority. I think being in the hunt, it's fun, it's challenging. And I want to be here and see this team make the playoffs."


Fleury, at 39 years old, has played in only 28 of Minnesota's 58 games this season, posting a record of 12-10-3 with a 2.92 goals against average, .899 save percentage, and one shutout.


With Fleury's reluctance to be moved, the Wild may opt to bolster their roster at the trade deadline to make a push for the Stanley Cup this spring. As Fleury's contract is set to expire in July, this opportunity could potentially be his last chance at capturing another Stanley Cup title.
