Yeah might "only" score 20 goals (which would be so bad for this team...to have another 20 goal scorer), but that is all he is going to be asked to do. Just like Powe, Carcillo, or whoever else he may replace is going to be asked to do. He isn't replacing Richards. He isn't replacing Carter. He is replacing another player who will probably put up the same amount of point and contribute the same on defense. Powe is faster and probably better on defense than Guerin, but guess what, this team has a ton of good defensive forwards AND defenseman. What a shame to bring in a 20 goal scorer to this team.
So you're expecting Guerin to score 20 goals while playing on the 3rd line? How do you expect that to happen?
I'd rather not have him anywhere near this team, but that doesn't look like that's going to happen. The Flyers are replacing a young, inexpensive, enery player like Powe with an aging, slowing *******. Brilliant work. Really. ****ing brilliant.
Homer is ****ing up this team with every move he makes. It's so sad.
