However, that might be what we would have to settle for if it comes down to that. I don't think we have the spare assets like last season to make a Hossa-esque move unless we trade core players and high draft picks.
Hossa was considered a playoff bust until he played with Crosby...

Guerin still has something left in the tank... he is big and a force around the net and along the boards... he can still skate... he is also a right handed shot... he is going to be an UFA this Summer so he is going to be on the trade block I believe.

I don't want to see the Pens make another big trade like last season. They will actually have to give up something of value this time... and I feel like Guerin can be had for a 2nd and a mid level prospect perhaps.

I know he can make a big impact for the Pens if Shero acquires him.
