No offense and I love Gionta, but Gionta doesn't have the net presence of Guerin. I'm talking being able to screen the goaltender and being hard to push away from the front of the net. Sure Gionta has heart and doesn't give up, but you need size too. We don't have anyone who does that. I wouldn't even give Guerin a top 6 position. I'd free flow our top 8 of Gomez, Gionta, Cammalleri, Plekanec, Pouliot, Kostitsyn, Guerin and Eller (9 if Pacioretty makes the team). Just because Guerin would start in a top 6 position doesn't mean he plays 20 minutes a game. If you want to put him with Cammalleri and Plekanec, that's fine too. Just as long as we give our young guys like Pouliot and Eller a chance on the top 2 lines during the game. It keeps everyone fresh and familiar for the playoffs.
