From Michael Russo of the Minneapolis Star Tribune:
While it’s still uncertain whether the Wild will be able to work out an extension with its all-time leading scorer, Marian Gaborik’s agent said Monday that last week’s four-hour dinner meeting between Gaborik and Wild management may pay dividends.
“I have a tremendous amount of respect for how they handled that,” agent Ron Salcer said of the meeting between Gaborik, GM Doug Risebrough and assistant GM Tom Lynn in Slovakia.
“I can tell you, after talking to Marian, it made him feel really good the way they shared everything with him about the team and the future. I thought it was a smart move on their behalf. It was a very beneficial thing they did.”

Give the Wild management credit because their efforts seem to have had only positive effects on Gaborik and his agent Ron Salcer.
