Anyone who watched Guerin play with the Isles, saw he was slowing down. Ask and Isles fan. I even said as much last Nov. when I was pimping for Shero to trade for him. But I just felt he would get a second wind if he came to the Pens - and he did, but ran out of steam after the Caps series. You could see Guerin wasn't the same player 2-3 years ago.... but people somehow thought a 15 game stretch in the reg season + 2 playoff rounds of inspired play, meant he was 25 again.
Whitney hasn't shown any signs of slowing down. Zero.
Anyone making a parallel between Whitney and Guerin, hasn't watched Whitney play. He is called the "Wizard" for a reason - this guy is in great shape, still has wheels, and it isn't a stretch to say he will be a dangerous player until he is 40+.
I watched him play a ton last season, and lack of support is the only reason his numbers were down. He was right in the same ballpark with goals, but his assists were down, because his linemates weren't finishing his sick passes (sound familiar?)
