Bill Guerin will reportedly interview with the Minnesota Wild for their general manager opening.
Guerin announced his retirement as a player in December of 2010 having won Stanley Cups with both the New Jersey Devils (1995) and Pittsburgh Penguns (2009). In 2011 he moved into a player development role with the Penguins before being hired by general manager Jim Rutherford as the team's assistant general manager in 2014. In that role, he won back-to-back Stanley Cups (2016 & 2017) with the Penguins and was named general manager of Pittsburgh's AHL affiliate, the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins. Considering his long history of winning, the 47-year-old could be an intriguing hire for the Wild who have underachieved in the playoffs so far. May 5 - 3:57 PM

Ben Holmstrom's been good, [Andreas] Nodl has been good, [Mike] Testwuide played a real good game on Friday night. So, there's a lot of people who are making life difficult on us for decision-making. That's a good thing." Guerin had 21 goals and 24 assists in 78 games with the Pittsburgh Penguins last season.

The 39-year-old notched 21 goals and 45 points in 78 games last year with the Penguins. He saw most of his time on line with Sidney Crosby and played on the top power-play unit as well.

After this week's signings and the departure of Sergei Gonchar, the Penguins still have approximately $2 million of cap room.

Veteran winger Bill Guerin allegedly wants $2 million to continue his career with the Penguins and the club seems to have enough funds to satisfy him. That said, GM Ray Shero seems reluctant to max out his clubs' cap and is hoping that Guerin will play for less in 2010-11. Stay tuned.

Bill Guerin reportedly turned down a deal with the Penguins that would have involved a pay cut from the $2 million he made last season.

GM Ray Shero's top priority going into the free agent period was to improve the team's defense. Now that he feels like he's done that with the recent signings of Zbynek Michalek and Paul Martin, the team has turned their attention over to securing potential wingers. Shero spoke with Guerin on Thursday and he still might end up working something out with the Penguins. However, at least one other team is reportedly interested in Guerin's services. Stay tuned.

The 39-year-old veteran registered 21 goals and 45 points in 78 games with the Penguins in 2009-10.

The door is not shut completely on their returns to the Penguins, but they should draw interest from several clubs, especially Gonchar.

Stay tuned.
