NHL: Talks reach pivotal point


Talks between Marian Gaborik and the Minnesota Wild have reached a pivotal point as the season opener begins on October 11th. Wild GM Doug Risebrough tells the St. Paul Pioneer Press that it’s time for Gaborik to make a decision. Two days ago Ron Salcer told the paper that Marian told him to get a deal done. Talks are on-going but it’s unclear whether a deal is imminent. The Wild are prepared to trade Gaborik if he denies their offer.
