If a 2nd gets it done, then I think it's a no-brainer.
Shero will probably try to top up the roster for the playoffs as always. Last season most were entirely underwhelmed by the prospect of getting Guerin, but it worked pretty well.
Poni is a solid improvement, and if that's as good as it can be without bleeding something significant.... fine with me.
Not the only option, but one of the more plausible ones. Agree on the price as well. Might have to add something marginal - like when Rags got Antropov last season. I think Antropov is better though, but if nothing else he has shown this season that just because you used to be a Leaf you don't have to suck.
