Bill Guerin for anything
 
A Pro Set Dave Snuggerud card. An old boot. Used erotica.

Fill in the blank, just don't send back salary past this year, and get him the hell off my team.

bill guerin for a 7th round pick

Drake1588 11-21-2009 09:56 PM

'_____ for no salary in return' trades will be a tough sell at any time under a salary cap, midseason.

Not "no salary", just nothing past this year.

I'll call Shero, you call Rutherford.

Crispy Crust 11-21-2009 10:36 PM

Isn't he on a 1 year deal? I am pretty sure you guys can survive with him a little longer.

This isn't a serious thread, CW is just damn frustrated just like the rest of the Pens fanbase. Billy G shows zero, zip, zilch effort on the ice and there's no room for that in an aggressive system while playing alongside a speedy Sidney Crosby.

Needless to say, we all ****ing hate Guerin and can't wait to be rid of his cap hit and get that roster spot back. :rant:

Guerin for Nilsson?

Cant say I am surprised with this. I was expecting it to happen sooner rather than later. Hopefully the Pens can find suitable mainstay wingers for Crosby.

Again, no.

Guerin has had a bad season, but there's no reason to trade him right now. He still puts up fair enough numbers, brings leadership, and most importantly, is on a cheap deal that's up at the end of the season. He isn't the player he once was, but I betcha he finishes the year with 20 + goals.

Trading him for Aaron Ward is a terrible idea. Ward has had a putrid season and would be the seventh best defenseman on the team when everyone is healthy.

Guerin is low risk, high reward because he doesn't have a bad contract at all for what he can be.

SCUDeriMISSILE 11-21-2009 11:29 PM

I haven't given up on Guerin yet. He's looked brutal so far, but then you see him snipe one and realize that no one on your team brings that element.

Billy G is a fixture on this team this year, like it or not.

Ugene Malkin 11-21-2009 11:30 PM

Dare we say he is this years Satan?

Captain Hook 11-22-2009 01:47 AM

Trading Guerin's pointless at the moment. I don't see him going anywhere unless Shero thinks he can get a significantly better winger than him at the deadline. I doubt he can given the cap issues and the fact I don't think Shero is willing to give up much in trades.

Caputi and Tangradi have both been playing well in the AHL. Hopefully one of them can come up and bump Guerin down a few lines before the end of the season. Bylsma could wind up using Guerin like he used Satan last year in the playoffs. Play Guerin on line 4 and double shift the centers Crosby, Malkin and even Staal once in while to create more scoring depth.

detredWINgs 11-22-2009 10:04 AM

What do people expect? Guerin is old, and he just won the cup for the second time. He has nothing to prove and hes already playing for a cup contender, so he has no reason to bust his ass in order to look like an enticing deadline pick up. Like many veterans who have been on winning teams, hes likely done putting on a show in the regular season and is saving himself for the playoffs. Whether its an honorable thing to do or not, its very common. He'll be valuable for his calm and leadership during the cup run, and will probably score some big goals to boot.

I would have liked to see more of Satan in HCDB system. No Sarcasm.

CF Punk 11-22-2009 10:16 AM

Sad to see people giving up on Guerin already. Its still relatively early in the season...

UnderratedBrooks44 11-22-2009 12:21 PM

It's funny how a guy who is old as the hills signs for peanuts and people expect him to look dominant at times. He's on pace for 18 goals, 46 points so while he should bump up his goal total, which he still has A LOT of time to do, I'm not going to get on his case when he's probably like the 8-10th most important skater on the team.

ChrisKreider20 11-22-2009 12:30 PM

Drury?

Who is expecting him to be dominant? People just want to see 5 on 5 hockey when he's on the ice.

I dunno, I've been over this a lot with Pens fans. Overall I just think it's hard to claim a guy isn't trying, especially when he's at the end of the road in his career. If Guerin manages 50 points, like it or not they got a return on their investment.

I know what you're saying. Hard to argue against it. But the guy has looked bad.
