KAPRIZOV NEGOTIATIONS REPORTEDLY BEING HELD UP BY 'OBSTACLES'

SEP 14, 2021  (0H08)      BRENNEN BEAUDIN
Minnesota Wild general manager Bill Guerin has his hands full trying to get his young superstar, Kirill Kaprizov back under contract. It has been two months since Guerin said that the negotiations had not hit a stand-still but now there appears to be more problems in the negotiations.

"There are going to be some obstacles," Guerin told The Athletic's Michael Russo on Monday.

"I will say this, we are at a point where we feel we're being extremely fair," Guerin added. "How far apart are we? Not very, but sometimes those can be the things that take a while. I mean, that's the way I see it. You could ask (Kaprizov's agent) Paul (Theofanous) or Kirill and they might say something very different."

Guerin refused to go into detail on the talks, but the rumors are that the Wild have offered a deal with an annual salary of around $9 million.

"We've made a very fair offer, and that's just where we are," Guerin said.

The dynamic 24-year-old won the Calder Trophy last season after leading all rookies with 27 goals and 51 points in 55 games. He also led the team's forwards in ice-time, averaging 18:18 a night.
