What the hell are you talking about? His surgery was VERY minor, basic cleanup...
Its funny how common sense takes a backseat on this forums.
They want to roll 3 D lines, not 2. It has nothing to do with Pronger's surgery. Having Mezsaros, O'Donnell and Walker on the team just means this team can afford having injuries in the top 4.
As for Guerin, he'll make the team and they will figure out what happens next when players come back from injury. They've had this mentality about everything since Holmgren took over, why would it change now?
Id much rather have Guerin on the third line than Powe or Carcillo, at least he'll be able to put points up and be a factor in the playoffs. I think Powe's days as a Flyer are done once Betts come back. Not a big loss, so who cares.
