On today's episode of Locked on Wild, we dive into the 4 most impactful moves Bill Guerin has made to help shape the 2022-23 roster. We start with the acquisition of Filip Gustavsson. We rehash the Cam Talbot timeline and what led to the decision to trade him, and why familiarity with Gustavsson played a huge role for Billy G to make the trade. We look at the strides Gustavsson has taken, and why without him the Wild are probably not in a playoff spot. We discuss in-season acquisitions Ryan Reaves and Marcus Johansson as two instances in which Guerin identified clear needs on the roster and went out to get guys he knew would be able to handle their assignments. We look at the impact of both players, and how they have impacted players around them in the lineup. We finish by discussing Jordan Greenway's trade to Buffalo. We marvel at how Guerin was able to get such a high return considering Greenway's offensive production and untapped potential. We also discuss the impact that freed up money will have come the offseason.
