Regier said he and Wild general manager Chuck Fletcher were discussing a different player when Fletcher told him he wanted to focus on Pominville. Regier called the decision “difficult” to trade such an integral piece of the team.
“It’s no fun being where we are. It doesn’t matter whether you’re a fan or in my position. There’s no enjoyment out of it, but there is an opportunity,” Regier said. “And what we’re going to do is seize on the opportunity.”
