(St. Paul, MN) -- Wild GM Bill Guerin says that negotiations with Kirill Kaprizov have slowed down recently. Guerin says the organization and the Calder Trophy winner aren't far apart, but added that negotiations may take a while. Last month, reports claimed that the Wild offered Kaprizov a five-year deal worth around 45-million dollars. The Wild begin preseason on September 25th against St. Louis.
